Hi, I'm having trouble getting a COMPLETE list of applications that have been installed on Windows.  I've tried WMIC Product Get and extracting the Uninstall registry location with Powershell, however both of these methods only include applications that were installed with an MSI file.  If you install an application via a setup.exe or similar executable this does not get included.  TIA

Download MiniToolBox. Open it. Click Yes. Check List Installed Programs. Click Go. That's it!:)

Thanks for the info.  Is there any way to do it without a third party program?  In Powershell or otherwise?

Yep - can be done in powershell. See https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/heyscriptingguy/2011/11/13/use-powershell-to-quickly-find-installed-software/

Or you can access your programs list from the Run box.

 

How to view all Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 applications, App Store applications, and third party applicaions installed on your computer.  This will not list Portable Applications.

Press the Windows key windows-key.png  and the R key to open the Run box.

When the Run box opens copy and paste shell:appsfolder, then click/tap on OK.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
