Can you give us a little more detail? Are you looking to see if a particular application is or is not installed or a list of applications?
I am trying to verify if Microsoft Lync has been installed on the local systems. I know some have it and some don't. I see it in the list of programs I can chose from but I want to know if there is an efficient way to get that done.
Go to Queries > My Queries
Right click > New Query
Name it something like "MS Lync is Installed"
On the top left section, navigate to Software > Add or Remove Programs > Program
At this point I would suggest you uncheck the "Display Scanned Values" in the top center if you have a lot of systems on the core
Now click on "Name" and choose "Like" and in the "Edit values:" box, type in Microsoft Lync and then click on Insert
In the bottom left *Select Columns" I would navigate the same tree as you did above and select Name and Version
Great, thanks I will give this a try.
