1. RDP. :-)

2. Deploy software using domain GPO.

3. Use PSEXEC to remotely run WMIC command for application installation and uninstallation.

Just a list of the installed programs as shown in Control Panel?

If so, the command line based tool is PsInfo which gathers key information about the local or remote Windows.

Specifically, the command to collect a list of installed software on computer ABCD is:

psinfo \\abcd -s

If the remote registry is not accessible, then either the firewall on that computer is blocking, or the remote registry service is not running - or both. You can influence both by using GPOs.
