Detection Method for Office 365 with Device Based License

Brass Contributor

We have to maintain two versions of Microsoft Apps for enterprise (Office 365) in ConfigMgr - one with User licensing and another with Device licensing in our computer labs.  The detection method is identical for both.  Is there a reg key or file we can use to determine the license type so we can update our detection methods and keep them unique?

Thanks.

We found a registry key to differentiate an Office 365 installation.

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\ClickToRun\Configuration

O365ProPlusRetail.DeviceBasedLicensing = 1 (Device-Based Licensing)
O365ProPlusRetail.DeviceBasedLicensing = 0 (User-Based Licensing)
