How to determine number of users in a multi-seat standalone license?

Hi,

 

Is there a way to determine the number of users using a multi-seat standalone license in a network? Something like a Network License Manager but for standalone licenses.....

 

is this possible?

 

Thanks

Manually check = no automation, done by hand/in person, one at a time.
Standalone = not networked, not counted on networks.

There are dozens for for-purchase software inventory and audit tools you can get to automate the task if that helps: some even claim free-status.
I personally like Lansweeper, I've used Spiceworks before but I've not tried Open-Audit or Emco.

so the only way is to manually check each pc in a network if it has a standalone installation or not?
