Check this blog post for getting the list using Microsoft AD cmdlets..

With Quest AD cmdlets use the following code..
Get-QADComputer -SizeLimit 0 | Select-Object Name,OperatingSystem,OperatingSystemServicePack,OperatingSystemVersion | Export-CSV AllWindows.csv -NoTypeInformation

Open in new window
