    Application License Management - How?

    One of my teachers has brought an appication and only 10 licences for it. He and the head refuse to buy a site license so I cant look into that.

    The applcation in question can be installed on a server and then the shortcut can be placed on up to 50 machines but i have to ensure that only 10 machines access the software at any one given time so that we dont break the license agreement.

    What i need to be able to do is have a program sitting on the server that says once 10 instances of this software is open deny any other requests until one of the current instances ends.

    Does anyone know how I could go about this?

    The other option is to install the software on just 10 machines, but this will make a mess of my start menu showing icons for the application when it isnt installed on the majority of the machines..

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Preferably looking for something free.
    Were running server 2k3 and XP

    Another option is to create a share for this program only. In the properties of the share you can limit the amount of concurrent connections. Point the shortcut to this share and i think you should be ok.
    Not tried this myself but seem to remember it being an option for another program i looked at.

    That is what I did with Memory Map at one school and it worked fine.
