    Program Usage

    I'm trying to sort out my licences and I need to know if particular programs are used at all as I suspect that some are not.

    Is there anything in Windows or anywhere that will tell me the usage?

    I can see when the prog was last accessed and that helps a bit but it isn't the whole picture.

    I thought I saw something about this somewhere but I have searched the forums without success - if anyone can point me in the right direction>

    If you have impero you can run a report to see what is being used - mainly just internet and office last time I checked!

    There are some third party apps that may help depending on your setup and how many stations:

    Wakoopa - Discover software & games
    Slife Labs, LLC

    They seem to report up to the web though rather than an internal database. I have not tried them at all but these could help provide a clearer picture of what applications are in use without requiring a pay for product or a whole bunch of scripting.

    Edit:
    Here is a pay for option:
