use built-in regedit tool

run regedit on your PC and choose "File -> Connect to remote registry" type its IP and check

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

Download PSTools from www.sysinternals.com, unzip into the system32 folder and use PSINFO.exe with the following in a batch file

setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion
REM This txt file lists the computers to pull data from
set file=psinfo.txt
FOR /F %%i IN (%file%) DO (
set name=%%i
psinfo -s \\!name! >C:\\psinfo\!name!.txt
) 

pause

System Information for Windows (SIW) is a single Executable.  Used in conjunction with PSEXEC, you can have it run a 2-4 minute system report which includes just about all the information you can dream up about a PC.  I'm currently writing an Access Database to import that data and subsequently flag systems that don't don't meet requirements or even troubleshoot systems that appear to have issues.
