Hi,

I`m trying to find a way to quickly audit around 100 machines on a domain for a specific application that has been deployed through group policy or a better way to audit gp results and see if an msi deployment is successful / where it was installed.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? I have so far seen some scripts that use WMI to query installed software but i`m not sure how i can get this to run across all client machines.

Cheers,

Set a script as login script to query program and write the log file to a server share.
wmic product where "name like 'Adobe AIR%'" >\\server\share\%computername%-air.txt

Simplistic but gets the job done.
