Does inventory scanner scan Add Remove Programs?

The Zen 7 scanner scanned Add/Remove Programs, and the MSI database, for installed software.

ZCM 11.1 does not appear to be doing this.

Am I missing something?

No, you aren't. 😞

I'd strongly suggest you enter an RFE. The more do, the more likely it
will be considered. IMHO this is the biggest shortcoming of the
inventory piece of the product.

Hi michelsr and Massimo,

You will hopefully be delighted to hear that this is taking up a fair
bit of the [ZAM Team] Engineering effort for 11.3. There is a very
strong focus on how we can vastly improve our Software Recognition.

Senior Product Manager - ZAM
