So itís more to customise the software a little with a splash screen rather than any form of forced licence compliance.

a) Contact you and get the correct licence file emailed across. Replace the dummy file with the new one and push the whole lot out over the network.or
b) hand install the software on one PC using your current online registration system. Once completed, copy the newly downloaded licence file from that PC and overwrite the dummy file on the server; then push the whole lot out over the network.
Itís simple, itís guaranteed to work, it doesnít run into any user permission problems and it allows users to continue using the software when not connected to the network.
If the software gets upgraded all the admin has to do is make sure the real licence file is copied over the dummy one again and let it roll out to clients.
