    Counting licenses with registry key

    systems@age.mpg.de Rookie



      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:




      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?
