Software Inventory in SCCM 2007

I am trying to use Report Software 01A in SCCM 2007 to get a list of all installed software in our enviroment but it is missing alot of titles.  For expamle we have 300 machines but the report only shows 20 installs of Windows..  I am not an SCCM expert but some direction would be a great help.  

Thanks!

These reports are coming from the hardware inventory of SCCM client (because it uses the registry information to figure this out).  

So, I would check the SCCM console and see how many SCCM clients are install and working.  

Of these 300 machines, how many of them have a working SCCM client installed?

When I look at the All Systems Collection, they all do have the agent installed.  I don't know if they means there working, how would I verify that?

run a different report.... this will show you

Count operating system versions   (the total will show you  the total number of working clients)

I ran the report to show a specific software product, in this case Windows XP.  Returned 14 results.  Next questions is, how do I fix..

well, first I recommend that you try to determine how many working SCCM clients you have.  You can run a report called :

"Count operating system versions"   (the total will show you  the total number of working clients)

If you run this and you only see 14, then the problem you have is simple;  your additional devices on the network are not FUNCTIONING SCCM clients.  That is, they might have the SCCM software installed, but for some reason, the clients are not working.

Well, that works.  321 copies of Windows.  Guess the agents are working good..  More pc's then I thought.  Thank you very much for your help!
