Anyone know any good software to track software licenses on Mac OSX to include Adobe, Macromedia etc.... Would be very much appreciated. Thanks Steven

Exactly: wouldn't an Excel spreadsheet with machine name, IP, software package and license key be sufficient?

I heart nothing
I assume you want something automated that you dont have to manually enter each item like in a spreadsheet or db?

Many software packages designed for distributed use have a little audit program which hands out licenses to client machines (so as to ensure that no more than the purchased licenses are being used at any one time).

I think that's the sort of program he's speaking of. I don't know of any centralised solution, but I know Adobe makes one for at least Acrobat and Quark definitely has one for QXP.
I don't know what they're called though - just that my Uni uses them.
