Perhaps a little hasty in my initial posting, but I've not done the following which seems to work although the editor doesn't like it much:"Windows Application:??APPLICATION_NAME??"."Version (Windows)" = "??VERSION??"
"Windows Application:??APPLICATION_NAME??"."Version (Windows)" = "??VERSION??"
Is this a valid way to proceed?

I gave this a shot on my test server and it seems to work okay but with a few caveats!
This check works and correctly returns true or false:
"Windows Application:VMWare Tools" exists
This check only works if there is a part added for the resolved APPLICATION_NAME, in my case "VMWare Tools":
"Windows Application:??APPLICATION_NAME??" exists
You can't seem to add a part for ??APPLICATION_NAME??. It doesn't seem to be resolved in the compliance rule.
So I think in your case as long as you added the both Netbackup Client names as parts you should be okay. I'd set APPLICATION_NAME to a String Enumeration with the two names as allowed values so that these remain in sync.
My test was on BBSA 8.0.0 SP6.
Thanks for the information. I'll have more of a look at that today. This point about using the String Enumeration is a good one and solves one of the concerns I had.
