    Counting licenses with registry key

    systems@age.mpg.de Rookie

      Hi,

       

      in our institute we use Windows 7 Professional and Windows 7 Enterprise and I am trying to count the Licenses for every edition.

       

      I figured out that the registry Key

       

      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\EditionID

       

      has either the value "Enterprise" or "Professional"

       

      So I tried the following:

       

      WindowsLicensing.JPG

       

      I did the same for Professional and assigned both to "all PCs"

       

      But the result is that in both categories the "Total install count" stays 0.

       

      Any ideas on what I am doing wrong?

       

      Or is there a better way to count windows licenses for different windows editions?
