Detecting the license type (Free, Pro, Pro+) installed on user systems



System administrators may need a quick, automated way to detect the Office Timeline licenses activated on user machines. To do so, you can use the LQ.exe command line utility installed by the add-in.


  1. Create a script that remotely executes that LQ.exe utility on each system, and then processes the output.

  2. The tool will produce a CSV string with the following fields:
    <computer name>,<license internal id>,<license type>,<license expiration date>

  3. Process the CSV string according to your specific requirements
