How can we improve the SMA (K1000)?

On Kbox 1000 how do we limit a software based on number of license it has.

On Kbox 1000 how do we limit a software based on number of license it has. For example, if we have only 500 Adobe Acrobat License how do we stop installation after 500th license has been install? I guess, I am looking for a license counter that would automatically stop the install.

    Just as an idea for this in the mean time:
    You could create a smart label called '(Software) Installed' (which detects if the software is installed) and if you install the software using a vbs to launch it you could create an sql query in the vbs to perform a count of the number of machines in the group (see below for an idea), then if the count hasnt reached your specified limit allow the installation, or if it has reached the limit stop the install.

    You should edit this but in something like FlySpeed SQL it will give you a list of all your machine groups nd the number of machines in them.
    Select
    LABEL.ID,
    LABEL.NAME,
    count(MACHINE_ID)
    From
    LABEL Join
    MACHINE_LABEL_JT On LABEL.ID = MACHINE_LABEL_JT.LABEL_ID
    group by LABEL.ID, LABEL.NAME
