make a batch script with this in

[code]
@echo off

If Exist c:\installedprogs.txt Del c:\installedprogs.txt

regedit /e c:\regexport.txt "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall"

find "DisplayName" c:\regexport.txt >c:\regprogs.txt

for /f "tokens=2 delims==" %%a in (c:\regprogs.txt) do echo %%~a >>c:\installedprogs.txt

del c:\regexport.txt
del c:\regprogs.txt

[/code]

then call this bash script with another bash script containing your server named using this

[code] for /f %%a in c:\machinesfiles.txt do path_to_above_bash_script.bat

Hi jaxstorm,

Can this script will export the date of installation and also the path where the application is installed.

This is a full script, all you need to is copy the initial text between the code tags into a notepad file, then save it as script.bat

Then make ANOTHER script with the text after the second code tag and make it call the other script.

You'll also need to make a third text file with a list of servers that you wish to query.

I'm afraid I cannot make it any simpler, or I'll be doing your job/assignment for you

You need the brackets in the for loop.

[code] for /f %%a in (c:\machinesfiles.txt) do path_to_above_bash_script.bat
