Listing the applications installed on discovered servers

Started by DHAYES

I'm currently using version 6.0.5 of Network Scanner and finding it incredibly useful. However I'm having trouble finding a way of listing the applications installed on discovered servers!

One way investigated was to utilise the WMI32_Products query though it seems this instigates a consistency check on the remote server and as such is not very desirable. My next line of inquiry was to check against the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall thread and to check each subkey and select out the DisplayName parameter however I can't seem to find a way to read subkeys.

Any advice or pointers for a different approach?

Thanks in advance.

There's an option specifically for reading the list of installed applications. It reads the Uninstall registry key, filters out duplicates and reads version info:
