Thanks. Yes, of course I can do all this. I just thought that there was a tool in Windows to do that.

Depending on whom ever you're dealing with the graphic's approach is a lot easier than cmd for novice to do,
And is a process they can repeat for other chores

Yes. To clarify, WMI's Win32_Product class will only provide information for software installed using Microsoft's MSI packages (.msi files). Any software installed through executables (.exe files) will not be listed in the wmic product command (which is indeed "a good chunk of it").

A slightly better way to retrieve a list of installed programs through the command line, while maintaining a degree of simplicity, is to use the line below.
Code:
for /f "tokens=1,2,* delims= " %I in ('reg query "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall" /s ^| find "DisplayName "') do @echo(%K
What this command line actually lists is a fact you can judge for yourself by observing the specified registry key name.

I haven't tested how accurate this command line is when compared to the GUI, appwiz.cpl panel (Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features). Perhaps you guys can help verify this solution.

+1

And this graphical approach will include each of the softwares' icons too.

Yep and if you want more information about an entry from the first screen shot you can ask them to change the page view to details and get the versions and install dates...

Everyone is or wants to learn about graphic's feature built into the os chances are better that they might already know about them

CMD is way to complicated with the stings to copy and paste... imho

I get this output:

Or 52 detected programs.

If I run SIV I get:

I get 171 Programs installed. Added to the list in my earlier post. So far it wins.

Edit. Belarc ties with Farbar.

Edit. D7 lists 172 Programs. I use an old version that was free and has more functionality than the currently available version.
Is there a tool to collect a list of all installed programs?-d7-v6.6.4.jpg

Yes you're correct of course. The OP has contradicted the question contained in the first post when posting the following:

It's still interesting to see what is listed by various methods.
