    If you want this to work you have to extend your inventory to look for that reg value and then create a query after that.

    I'm thinking the same thing as question, what is the reason for the query?

    Basically I have a couple of programs and as part of my OS image that I use for all my computers, I add registry entries to show either when a computer has been scanned with my programs or for the OS image I add entries to show what version of the image is installed.

    I would like to keep track of this through SMS.

    How should I use SMS to do this??

    Apologies for the delay mate...
    Step 1: Configure hardware inventory if you have not. (not just software)
    step 2: Modify sms_DEF.mof file on each site to query for registry values.
    need to know whats to be done, see below link for "Custom Inventory  individual registry keys".
