Can anyone share some of the Landesk methods to find computers that have a certain Excel add-in installed? I am trying to find ways to search for it on the Windows XP Pro platform.
Thanks in advance.
you can scan the registry for entries
with the LANDesk tool RegToInv: (for the tool ask LANDesk support)
"HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Office\Excel\Addins" "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Excel\Add-in Manager"
or s. here: Extending Inventory with Unmodeled Data
Or you can change your scan settings in ldappl3.template for XLA files (s. here too: http://www.droppedpackets.org/inventory-and-slm/what-to-monitor-in-slm/), but I would prefer the scan in the registry.
