| What -- from your point of view -- is an "application"?
Good question. Let me try to elaborate: I would like to know if people in
our company (building techniques) are using non-licensed software (eg
Photoshop, Office, AutoCad). So I guess by 'application' I mean commercial
software packages like those.
Is it safe to assume those apps get listed in AppPath? I don't think my
users are cunning enough to mess with the registry, so I guess we're talking
about the 'standard' installation.
| Neither does every app have an Add/Remove Program
| entry. (And some things have entries which aren't apps).
Just out of curiosity: can one read the info/list one gets in Add/Remove
Programs? It's not a problem I get results that aren't actually apps, but it
is important I get all apps.
