Hi All,

At work I'm tasked with inventorying our servers, and my boss wants a complete listing of the applications installed on it and their current version.

I can easily get a list of installed applications from Installed Programs, however the version listed is the version when it was installed, not the current one.

Would Sisoft Sandra (business ed or higher) be able to do it? I know that it will give me a list of installed apps, but what other details would it give me? (research/googling didn't bring up anything conclusive, there is no biz level trial available either)

I'm hoping to not have to comb through every single program and get it from the "about" menu.

Also, to add another complication to the problem, if I can't get a program to do the querying for me, how the heck would I look up the current version of programs like "Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services ADOMD.NET" or "SQL 2008 R2 Reporting Services Sharepoint 2010 Add-in" which do not appear as an individual program on the start menu?

After doing some research I think taskinfo might work out, anyone use that program?

Do you happen to be running a Novell network? I think ZenWorks has something to do inventory.
