LicenseCrawler is a small and portable application which lets you scan your computer or others remotely for purchased and registered software programs. It can be handled by users of any skill level.
Since installation is not required, you can store LicenseCrawler on a USB flash drive, external drive or similar storage unit, save it to any computer and run it.
Alternatively, you can simply drop the app's files on any location of the hard drive. The most important factor is that the Windows Registry does not receive new entries, and no leftover files can be found on the hard drive after program removal. Plus, you can carry LicenseCrawler in your pocket whenever you're on the go.
The interface of the tool is common and user-friendly; you can get started by selecting a computer to search in, together with the Registry category. After a brief scanning session, you can find out the product ID, type and name, owner and serial number for each entry, aside from the scan date and time. These details can be exported to a plain text document (TXT), encrypted or not.
Furthermore, you can create a whitelist or blacklist, disable high speed scanning if you want to spare your computer's resources, enable a 64-bit scan, as well as scan multiple computers at the same time by inserting a TXT file from the hard drive.
Additional tools of LicenseCrawler let you encode or decode Base64, translate ASCII into decimal or hexadecimal, calculate MD5 or SHA2 checksums, as well as to check an Adobe key. Furthermore, you can save the configuration settings for further use, switch to a different language for the UI, and view log details.
The program has a good response time, swiftly completes a scan job, and uses a moderate quantity of CPU and system memory. It didn't cause us any trouble during our tests, such as making Windows hang, crash or pop up error notifications. All in all, LicenseCrawler is a reliable tool for finding out product licenses on a computer.
