Systems Management Question
How do you inventory against, deploy, and track licensing for Adobe Acrobat DC Std/Pro?

Apparently, Adobe Acrobat DC Standard and Pro use the same executable, install bits, have the same software GUID, and show up just as "Adobe Acrobat DC" in the Windows Programs & Features list. As I understand it, in order to do a Managed Installation via the K1000, you need to associate your install package to the Software Inventory entry. We have two modified packages (different serial numbers)... one for Standard, and one for Pro, but the problem is, that these show exactly the same in Software Inventory. I believe that license management is handled the same way, so I'm not sure how to have different Pro and Standard license associations. I'm not even entirely sure how to properly inventory our environment, to determine how many of each license we have available. The URL below does provide some further information from Adobe. I was really surprised not to find ANY information on this out there, as it seem like it would be a pretty common request. Any info is appreciated. Thanks!
