The generated IEMigrationAssessment document doesn't appear to be able to properly locate all Chrome installations. We use the Google Chrome for Business MSI package (which installs into %PROGRAMFILES%\Google\) vs the per-user install of typical installer. IEMigrationAssessment
reported that 12 out of 400+ PCs have Chrome, which is vastly under reported.
I know MAP was able to collect/harvest that Chrome was installed by directly querying the MAP database. For example, the following query returns over 250 workstations.
INNER JOIN Win_Inventory.ProductsUninstall ON Core_Inventory.Devices.DeviceNumber = Win_Inventory.ProductsUninstall.DeviceNumber
DisplayName like 'google chrome%'
The IE Migration report looks for a specific registry key to get information on the Chrome installation. If that key is not there, the feature won't report on the presence of Chrome. It seems that sometime in 2012, Google decided to move the location of
this registry key and ever since then MAP has not accurately reported Chrome installations.
The original intent of the feature was to assist companies in migrating off of IE 6 to a newer version and the third party browser stuff was added later. With the recent re-org and shift if resources and priorities, it has been decided that third party browser
reporting will be deprecated from the feature and has been removed from the next release of MAP.
