My question sounds cryptic or overs implified, and it is. the SitRep:
query 1. searches for computer.software.application suites.application suite.name & version = <version> Result = X
query 2. searches for computer.software.packages.package.filename (of same application) & version = Result Y
X != Y ... or is almost always never the same
Is this a result of one scannign registry and one scanning actual file system, or how can i be getting mismatch?
I am workign on a migration of this application for an updated server so I need to get a real count of software installs.. application suites resulted in higher count.. but the file name I assume verifies the file is actually installed..
