Cmdlet for getting list of Installed Software via Registry instead of win32_product.
Would be great to have a builtin Cmdlet for getting list of Installed Software via Registry instead of win32_product.
Why win32product is bad:
It would be faster, and would not trigger validation of all installed packages.
Would use the following regkeys to return list of software (name, version, installDate) on local or remote machine (requires Remote Registry to be enabled on remote machine).
Will watch for folks to add their voices to this.
In the meantime, if there is someone who wants to publish a user-contributed item to the PowerShell Gallery that does this, it would certainly be welcomed.
