Who installed this software, the local admin or the domain admin?

I am migrating the user profiles from a domain based network to a workgroup. I intend to kill the entire domain after the migration (with 'Profile Wizard') is complete. So far it works allright, apart from a few things.
 
I now find out that when logged in as a Local Admin I can not uninstall certain software, apparently that software was installed by the Domain Admin and can only be UNinstalled by that Domain Admin as well.
Now today the domain is still intact so I can solve this, but I intend to kill this domain entirely? Is there a way to identify which software was installed by who?  Should I reinstall this software again locally or is there a way to transfer those permissions to the Local Admin.

AFAIK you can only get hints, no proof. E.g. by looking into the registry hive for that user for entries in Software, and/or scanning their Start Menu folder.

You can always convert the Domain Admin profile to a local user pre removing the PC from the domain, so even if there is something overseen you are still able to properly uninstall then.

It would have been interesting to see your error message. Surely, you can install software "for this user only" (I think we all saw this option before), but that would not mean it cannot be uninstalled by other admins.
Also, software deployed by domain GPOs are uninstallable at any time and condition.

Is that error message still at hand?
