Office Product Naming Convention Violation

EF

Hello,

We have lots of office users, on many different versions of office. We just discovered that some installations of Office 2007, instead of showing in Lansweeper as "Microsoft Office 2007" or something similar, they show up as:

"2007 Microsoft Office system" (ver12.0.6425.1000)

This really messes up how we keep track of Office. Is there a way to fix this?

Thank you

2nd question: the product keys for an installation of "2007 Microsoft Office system" do not show up in the PCs Product Keys section.

In the installed software section: NO
In the license keys: yes, this will be changed in 4.1 (you won't need to enter the registry key any more, all versions will be found)

Will the upgrade to 4.1 remove the registry key if we put one in now?

Is there an ETA for version 4.1?

Yes, it's exactly the same.

Lansweeper gets it's information from the add/remove programs.

Does the software have the same name in Lansweeper as in add/remove programs?

EF

Actually, both.

Thanks for the quick reply!

Do you mean the display name in the software list or the license keys?
