I have the following script which runs and provides output, however it also give me an error message:

$computersToQuery = ("COMPUTER1", "COMPUTER2")

$softwareInventory = @{}
foreach ($computer in $computersToQuery) {
   $psinfoOutput = C:\WINDOWS\system32\psinfo.exe -s Applications \\$computer

   $foundSoftwareInventory = 0
   $computerName = ""
   foreach ($item in $psinfoOutput) {
      if ($foundSoftwareInventory -eq 1) {
         # Force the results to a string
         # Remove any single quotes which interfere with T-SQL statements
         # Load the result into a hash whereby removing any duplicates
         [string]$softwareInventory[$computerName][$item.Replace("'","")] = ""
      }

      if ($item -like "System information for *") {
         $computerName = $item.Split("\")[2].TrimEnd(":")
      } elseif ($item -eq "Applications:") {
         $foundSoftwareInventory = 1
         $softwareInventory[$computerName] = @{}
      }
   }
}

foreach ($computer in $softwareInventory.Keys) {
   foreach ($softwareItem in $softwareInventory[$computer].Keys) {
      $computer + ":" + $softwareItem
   }
}


Here is the result of running the script:

Not exactly sure why that error is appearing, I am not conviced it has to do with Powershell though.
To suppress it, add the code blow in your foreach loop prior to $psinfooutput

Trap { Continue }

@rwskas:  no dice sir, still the same errors.

here is what i did to be sure i understood you correctly:

$computersToQuery = ("COMPUTER1", "COMPUTER2")

$softwareInventory = @{}
foreach ($computer in $computersToQuery) {
  Trap { Continue } $psinfoOutput = C:\WINDOWS\system32\psinfo.exe -s Applications \\$computer

   $foundSoftwareInventory = 0
   $computerName = ""
   foreach ($item in $psinfoOutput) {
      if ($foundSoftwareInventory -eq 1) {
         # Force the results to a string
         # Remove any single quotes which interfere with T-SQL statements
         # Load the result into a hash whereby removing any duplicates
         [string]$softwareInventory[$computerName][$item.Replace("'","")] = ""
      }

      if ($item -like "System information for *") {
         $computerName = $item.Split("\")[2].TrimEnd(":")
      } elseif ($item -eq "Applications:") {
         $foundSoftwareInventory = 1
         $softwareInventory[$computerName] = @{}
      }
   }
}

foreach ($computer in $softwareInventory.Keys) {
   foreach ($softwareItem in $softwareInventory[$computer].Keys) {

Do this:

foreach ($computer in $computersToQuery) {
  Trap { Continue }
$psinfoOutput = C:\WINDOWS\system32\psinfo.exe -s Applications \\$computer

I am stumped.. I can copy and paste that script and run it without any issues. The only thing I see different is you run psinfo v 1.77 and I run v 1.75

Change this line:
$psinfoOutput = C:\WINDOWS\system32\psinfo.exe -s Applications \\$computer

to this:
$psinfoOutput=invoke-expression "C:\WINDOWS\system32\psinfo.exe -s Applications \\$computer"
*** that's all one line ;) ... don't forget the quotes.

This is more of a long shot than anything... but may be worth a try
Add "psinfo" as a System or User variable
In System Properties (Rigth click My Computer -> properties)
Select 'Advanced'
Select 'Environment Variables'
Under 'System Variables'
Select 'New'
Variable Name: psinfo
Variable Value: C:\Windows\System32\psinfo.exe
Select 'OK'
Select 'OK'
Select 'OK'

In your script, change $psinfoinfooutput = .. to the code snippet below


$psinfoOutput = psinfo -s Applications \\$computer

The following code with correctly pull from my BGinfo data base using the Host_Name field (a predetermined field through BGinfo).

The BGinfo grabs all the computer names when people log in after arriving to work. This script pulls the names and runs the software audit.

Now I am attempting to write the software audit results back into another database table called SotwareInventory........

I am having some trouble with this part because I am hopeless with SQL. Any ideas here?


Also, the errors I mentioned above are due to PSinfo no being installed on every computer....but it doens't need to be...all of this works without installing it everywhere.
