I've got a question about the inventory in LDMS 9.0 SP2+
I am currently trying to build a query to give me a list of computers which don't have Microsoft Access 2010 installed and I am having trouble because it seems that all of my computers have it when in fact almost none of them really do.
I am currently mining the computer.software.add or remove programs.program.name part of my inventory and I am looking for instances of Access 2010. There are two options available in my inventory and they read as follows:
Microsoft Office Access MUI (English) 2010
Microosft Office Access Setup Metadata MUI (English) 2010
again, a few computers have this software installed, but most don't. My problem is that every one of my machines has office 2010 and according to landesk they all have access. I know this to be false because I can go to the computers and verify that MSACCESS.EXE is not present, yet somehow the inventory scanner is picking up the installation.
Any thoughts on this? I'd really like to see the scanner be able to look for specific files or registry entries because it would be very easy for me to take care of this problem on my own.
