I am trying to collect the title and installation count of applications in my enterprise via SCCM.  I have run report "Software 01A - Summary of installed software in a specific collection" against all XP machines (SMS000ES)and the report comes back with no matching records found.  I assure you we have two or three applications installed.  I'm leaving the number of rows at 100 and Publisher blank.  What am I missing?

    Have you configured SCCM to use "Hardware" Inventory? How much time has passed after that?

    That should take some time to show up. You can check the results in the resource explorer.

    Yes, "Enable hardware inventory on clients" was set over a year ago.

    Last software scan is up to date - today.

    Collected files is empty though.

    Product details and file details both are fully populated.

    Under Hardware>Add/remove programs, this is fully populated.

    Any further help is appreciated!

    Collected files?

    Files are collected via software inventory.

    If you can see product details then hardware inventory is working OK.

    Yes, I can see product details, but still the report fails.  Any ideas?
