How to differentiate 2013 Pro Plus from 365 Pro Plus installations RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way to distinguish Office 2013 Pro Plus installations from Office 365 Pro Plus in PCs when looking at their configuration information, when they're deployed side by side in the same environment?

    From a License Management and SAM perspective, it would be necessary to make the distinction, as their licensing metrics are quite different. Even though a scanner would find the 365 Pro Plus (i.e. the "cloud licensed", per user) copies, they should be omitted when counting the total number of Office 2013 Pro Plus installations, that have been licensed though Volume Licensing (i.e. per device).

    Is there a way to separate the versions, using for instance some tool or script? Is the Robust Office Inventory Scan Tool (ROISCAN) compatible with O365?

  • Answering my own question :-) based on some testing.

    The 365 and 2013 Pro Plus versions do seem to install using distinct names. Any inventory scanner should be able to pick this up.

    Also, the ROIScan tool discerns the versions clearly. Please see below for partial output from ROIScan as an example.
