In order to solve this practical issue. We planned some rules. 1) no traces of key finder must be present in client side(No installation) 2) must take in the user login itself (i.e) in limited user or restricted user login.
First idea strike is we can take everything using remote login. Pros are we can get every system connected in network. Cons: User must allow the system to take it remote login & consolidation is also an issue.
Secondly, we planned and take IP list with host names, then search for software to take everything in remote.
Target is get keys of installed program in all system.
We shuffled a lot in all search engines. We got many software’s and wondered that as much tools are available to conslodate and track the assert via remote. Some of them area) Total Network inventory b) Product Key Explorer
c) Network inventory software d) Network Inventory Advisor
But a sad news is that these are all paid software not a freeware. Its around 25$bugs.
As on a search of 2 to 3 days of research we found a tool named as ProduKey developed by nirsoft.
to download: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/produkey.zip
A portable apps1 and runs even in restricted user 2
Which also can be used in network to find network system keys.
Step1: log in as a common user login in a network. For example. Administrator login in your system.
Step 2: unzip the progam and run produkey.exe
Step 3: enter the ip address
Step 4: result will be display with their host names. Select all result and export to the needed format(.txt, .csv)
Note : as per our analysis this program works using sharing fashion not in the concept of
remote login concept. System should be in a sharable between you. i.e without any error while opening in run prompt as shown below
