Discovering Software Installation

Hello,

I just stumbled across PolyMon and have a quick question:

Is PolyMon suitable for monitoring what software is installed on a number of computers?

I have a number of computers (~25) that I need to keep identical software versions on. My stuff shows up in the add/remove programs box and I just need to be able to quickly see whether all computers have version 1.1, 1.2, etc.

Can PolyMon show this kind of thing? What about using a custom plugin?

Thanks for any help,

Hi Matt,

I'm assuming you are on a Windows platform. The add/remove list is populated from registry settings. PolyMon does not currently have a native Registry monitor. That's a good idea though, so I will add one.
In the meantime, you could still access that data either by creating a custom monitor, or by using PowerShell and reading your registry values that way.

Thanks,
Fred.
