How can I retrieve a list of the apps installed on a desktop?
I'd like a way to query a desktop to retrieve a list of installed applications. I either need to do this from a script (with output to a flat file) or an open interface like a WMI query. Any ideas?
Yes. Take a look at the TechNet script center
for a variety of sample scripts that you can put together to do exactly what you want. The work's already done for you, all you have to do is put the pieces together.
