Detecting the license type 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>,<internal license id>,<license type>,<license expiration date>

  3. Process the CSV string according to your specific requirements
