Is there a script or DOS Command that I can run that will tell me what OS, updates, version of Office, version of IE, etc are installed on a terminal server?

I use a Terminal Server which is physically located in another State and I need to know as much about the currently installed software as I can.  I do not have Admin privilege to this machine, so I cannot just look at the installed rograms and cannot right click the desktop or My Computer Icons.  The goal is to create a test machine that we will install locally that mirrors the Terminal Server as closely as possible.

Can anyone help?

The only command line is to type   winver
That tells you Version of windows, service pack installed, registration info and memory

You can type in   msinfo32
That tells you everything. Except you many have to access it by clicking start, run, typing in:   msinfo32
In pure dos command line, the command is winmsd

Let me edit it that, you can go msinfo32 in command line, you'll have to navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\MSInfo  on the remote pc and type msinfo32
winmsd is the same

Use the /? after commands to see options, including scanning remote computer on network.
