Query SQL Backup Pro licence status through extended stored procedures?

Anyone know if you can query the SQL Backup Pro licence status (Activated, Expired, etc.) through the extended stored procedures?

I can't find any mention of it in the help files or forums, I thought it was possible - but perhaps I'm thinking of LiteSpeed....

    Hi, thank you for your forum post.

    You can use the extended stored procedures to query the license status as follows:

    USE master<br>GO<br>DECLARE<br>@LicenseType INT,<br>@Version VARCHAR(20),<br>@SerialNumber VARCHAR(20)<br>EXECUTE master..sqbutility 1021, @LicenseType OUTPUT, @Version OUTPUT, @SerialNumber&nbsp;OUTPUT;<br>SELECT @LicenseType&nbsp; AS 'License Type', @Version AS 'SQB Version', @SerialNumber AS 'Serial Number'

    Where, @LicenseType will be an Integer of one of the following:

    0 - No License trial period as expired.
    1 - Trial License
    2 - Standard Edition license (Standard Edition licenses are no longer available)
    3 - Professional edition license
    6  - Lite Edition License (Lite Edition licenses are no longer available)

    @Version is a varchar returning the version number of the SQBCoreService.exe.
    @SerialNumber is a varchar denoting the license serial number.

    Many Thanks
