We have a network with 200 PCs/laptops. Each machine has Outlook (as part of Office).

How can I poll the network to get a list of machine names and the version of Outlook which is installed on each machine?


Thanks

Id recommend the Microsoft planning and assessment toolkit. It will scan your computers and report back office versions and more.

You can also use the free MSIA (Microsoft Software Inventory Analyzer) tool which works best with networks of 250 or less machines.

Sorry, couldn't make either of these work in the time I had to spend on it. Ended up using Spiceworks

Thanks
