I consider the best free tool to be Spiceworks:
http://www.spiceworks.com/
Applications on all workstations in a domain is just one of the many reports available, tho it doesn't tell you if the application is licenced/freeware/shareware.

If it only for Microsoft related products then you can use the tool from Microsoft.

Apparently Spiceworks does do licences now:

Still not sure if it can tell freeware or shareware.

I've been evaluating LogInventory for hardware and software assets.
http://www.loginventory.com/en/download
Freeware for up to 20 assets -- Licensed for more than 20.
