Start Mstn with a script to check your own local database


I've seen multiple discussions about license overages and trusted licensing.  Has anyone thought of or developed a Windows script that would log each time Microstation is opened to a local database.  Then before the script would open Microstation (or the appropriate Bentley application), it would check the local database and warn you if it's been opened on too many machines in the last hour?

    I've been investigating some of the commercially available licensing management tools. Most are rather expensive and all would require a fair bit of customization in MicroStation and the other Bentley tools to interface. I've got most of the issues worked out in developing a custom license management tool. I'm close to starting the actual development, but want to exhaust all of the other possibilities first.
