How to output a list of installed programs on Windows with PowerShell

A vanilla script, but including all Win32_Product class properties – a quick search found only a very basic version how to do this in PowerShell:

# to write a installed program listing to a CSV file - just adapt the output dir below
Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_Product |`
$AssignmentType = $_.AssignmentType
$Caption = $_.Caption
$Description = $_.Description
$IdentifyingNumber = $_.IdentifyingNumber
$InstallDate = $_.InstallDate
$InstallDate2 = $_.InstallDate2
$InstallLocation = $_.InstallLocation
$InstallState = $_.InstallState
$HelpLink = $_.HelpLink
$HelpTelephone = $_.HelpTelephone
$InstallSource = $_.InstallSource
$Language = $_.Language
$LocalPackage = $_.LocalPackage
$Name = $_.Name
$PackageCache = $_.PackageCache
$PackageCode = $_.PackageCode
$PackageName = $_.PackageName
$ProductID = $_.ProductID
$RegOwner = $_.RegOwner
$RegCompany = $_.RegCompany
$SKUNumber = $_.SKUNumber
$Transforms = $_.Transforms
$URLInfoAbout = $_.URLInfoAbout
$URLUpdateInfo = $_.URLUpdateInfo
$Vendor = $_.Vendor
$WordCount = $_.WordCount
$Version = $_.Version

$Name | Select-Object `
}| Export-Csv c:\temp\installed-programs.csv -NoTypeInformation




Windows XP user profiles copy to greyed out ?

  1. Problem:
    1. For all profiles, not only for the logged in profile… Not likely a permissions problem? I can delete
    2. 201202-copy-testuser-final
  2. Solution:
    1. “if you’ve ever been logged into a profile without rebooting you won’t be able to copy that profile either. So you might have to restart before you can copy the profile.”
    2. or use shutdown /r when connecting via MSTSC.

Export options in Tivoli Endpoint Manager

  1. You can batch export Baseline task sets by right-clicking the baseline and chooosing export from the context menu: image
  2. Choose a download location: image
  3. Open the BES file (which is an XML file) with MS-Excel for better human readability: image
  4. Especially interesting information (highlighted in red here) for your documentation (tracking, potentially troubleshooting…) includes the task “name3” and the underlying Actionscript.

Failure due to timeouts when capturing image from Symantec-Ghost

  1. do not thin I Have not seen that before: image capture starts successfully, but  client times out in the middle; happens repeatedly both during the day and at night?
  2. symantec-client-timed-out
  3. What else to try? symantec-client-timed-out1
  4. Solution/workaround: inconclusive. First try w/o Deepfreeze installed and with high compression worked. But third try without any changes had also finally succeeded (although deploying that image was not tested).
