Software Metering

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,


I am new to SCCM and I am having some issues with software metering.

My manager as asked me to enable software metering for all adobe products.

can some please advise how this can be done.


We have a custom rule in software metering for Visio and Project.


However no ideas how I can do for adobe products and how much time will it take to populate the reports.

hi have you added any filenames to Software Metering, browse to one of the EXE's for an Adobe product, if you want to meter a specific version then add it there ?

Hi GarthMJ,


the problem was solved by pointing the test application to my computer(when it did not work i pointed the application on SCCM server, it was calculator just for test so it picked variables from WS 2012 R2 not from Windows 7 like it should), then it picked up all the information and it worked.


If you want results immidiately:


Run “runmetersumm.exe” from a SQL box

  • Copy runmetersumm.exe from SCCM Box to your SQL box to some temp folder (you previously downloaded ConfigMgr Tookit from MS website and installed it), if it updates with 0 entries check “mtrmgr.log” ON CLIENT to see if the rule works and finds the app you are trying to monitor.
  • Run cmd as admin and find runmetersumm.exe DBINSTANCE\DB




If it says 0 rows give it a couple of seconds and /or run actions on you client.

Is there a place we can see how many days are left until the data is ready to show up in reports ?

I know that by default its 7 days but, is there a place where i can see how many days are left ?

Thank you

No, there is no place to see this.
