May i know what you are trying to build the query against..
is if for installing sccm clients and are u determining the old sms clients?

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??

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.
