Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:
  • You install Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Service Pack 2 (SP2) in an environment.
  • There are several clients in the environment that have Microsoft Office 2010 products installed.
  • You install update 2796738 for System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2.
  • You try to use Asset Intelligence in System Center Configuration Manager 2007 to count the number of Office 2010 product licenses in the environment.
In this scenario, the Office licenses on certain computers are not counted.

Cause

This issue occurs because certain timing issues on the client may cause a failure in the fix for the "The query for the Asset Intelligence 'License 01A' report does not detect Microsoft Office 2010 product licenses" issue. Therefore, the Configuration Manager client cannot assign the correct Microsoft Product Code (MPC) during inventory.

Note The "The query for the Asset Intelligence 'License 01A' report does not detect Microsoft Office 2010 product licenses" issue was originally resolved in update 2444668 and this fix was included in later Asset Intelligence update rollups.
