    discover installed software regardless of path

    Alessandro Iacopetti

      for license counting purposes an "unnamed" company gave has an xml file containing a list of signatures of their products

      those signatures consists basically of records like

      "product name", "version", "filename", "filesize"

      where finding a given filename of a given filesize would mean that the corresponding product and version is installed


      i'm considering 2 options:


      1) build a component template for each signature, and run discovery jobs upon.

      problem: i can't make a discovery clause regardless of path

      eg: i can make c:\program files\product\file.exe discovery but not a file.exe discovery, to cover cases where the product wasn't installed in the default path


      2) nsh script that does something like

      for i in



      anyone stubled before on a similar problem?
