    Hi All,

    Sorry if this has been covered before however I could not find an appropriate thread within the forum pages.

    I currently am trying to automate the following process but have come unstuck with coding ability.

    Essentially, using powershell I need to collect the applications (incl version number) that are installed on a workstation, auto extract that data into a text file and (eventually) export it into a MS excel s/s.
    In notepad I have run a variety of commands such as ##Get-ItemProperty HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\* | select-object displayname, version | sort## however they produce different bodies of information none of which are complete.
    I have tried hitting the uninstaller path (as above) and hkcr:\installer\products\* as well.

    If anyone knows how to do this an easier way or simplify this process, further information would be great.
