Windows License Status

Looking to see if it would be possible to create a procedure that would allow us to find out of a desktop/server is properly licensed or is deactivated. Has anyone got this to successfully work?

    This is what I use for the servers:

    I think works perfectly.

    The magic it is to execute on powershell this script:

    ((cscript c:\windows\system32\slmgr.vbs /dlv | find 'Timebased activation expiration:')-split') (',-1,'simplematch'-Split'day',-1,'SimpleMatch' | select -Skip 1 -First 1)

    It will give you, in case the license it is temporary, the number of days left for the expiration.
