Hello,
I need to list the software which is currently install on my Window 7 OS.  Via an internet search I found this command;
WMIC
wmic-root\cli >/output:c:\SoftwareList.txt product get name.version

And got this;

C:\Windows\system32>WMIC
wmic:root\cli>/output:c:\SoftwareList.txt product get name.version
Node - ComputerName-DEL
ERROR:
Description = Invalid query

why did this fail? I got this from here;

Might you have a better command of method to get a software list?

This command is a little simpler than the one you originally tried

It takes just a few seconds for the list to appear.

Dear Chima,
Your problem is just a typo (use a , instead of .) like this :

wmic-root\cli >/output:c:\SoftwareList.txt product get name , version
