Microsoft plist files (Mac)

Dear all,

I see that some of my instances of Microsoft Office 2016 Standard (Mac) are recognized as Microsoft Office 365 Proplus (Mac).

In the SMACC, the "Application bundles" list shows that the difference between the 2 bundles is an application based on this rule:

On my Macs, I see this entry in the Inventory Server:

Name is:

"no microsoft office pro plus plist file found"

Path is:

/Library/Preferences/com.microsoft.office.licensingV2.plist/Library/Preferences/com.microsoft.office.licensingV2.plist

(Note that the Path is repeated twice in the field ???)

 

I checked on the Mac and the file that I have is:

 

/Library/Preferences/com.microsoft.office.licensing.plist

 

Anyone has some knowledge to share about how those files are used and what does "no microsoft office pro plus plist file found" mean?

 

Thanks
