39230 - Deauthorize one or more of multiple concurrent or single-use licenses has a nice clear recipe for removing licenses from an end users machines. Excerpt:

Single-use licenses

  1. To deauthorize a single-use license, verify that SoftwareAuthorization.exe exists in "C:\Program Files\Common Files\ArcGIS\bin".

  2. Open a command prompt window, and change the path to C:\Program Files\Common Files\ArcGIS\bin

  3. Run the following command to deauthorize the software silently:

  4. SoftwareAuthorization.exe -return ESU123456789,ESU987654321 /s


It's missing one critical piece though: how does one get the list of ESU numbers authorized on that machine?
