comment Options for Application Registry
first off, i appreciate all the thought you are putting into the comments @Doc Brown. after that, i think it's a small case of over-thinking the problem. we basically sell our clients our product ... they bring us in and we build it out for them, so we know exactly who they are and the version they're getting. however, once they take the build they're free to do with it as they please. as i've mentioned it's not a matter of programatically solving the problem as it is of administratively solving it.

thanks! as i mentioned to @Dr. House we really don't have the ability to "receive" the info from the clients because of how some of our clients use our application. the task at hand is to find the best way from a purely administrative position to maintain the data.

interesting responses. judging by the suggestions of excel/msaccess i'm led to believe that there are no products that exist in this space.

very good suggestion, but once we deliver the implementation a lot of the time we lose control of its ability to "call us back." also, i'm looking at the task from more of an administrative standpoint as opposed to software standpoint.

i think the question is as posted -- i'm looking for suggestions for products to use. excel (with a bunch of vlookup()s) is something we've entertained, yes, but i'd be surprised if there isn't something of more professional grade out there? probably ~150 clients with a total of ~250 client-version relationships (some clients run multiple versions of the same product)
