psinfo64 returns different installed software than psinfo RRS feed

  • Question

  • When execute 

    psinfo64 -s

    the list of applications returned is different (less applications) than when I execute 

    psinfo -s

    Is this expected behavior?  If so, then is it accurate to say that I must always run both psinfo64 and psinfo in order to get a more complete picture on each machine?

  • Well, as you can imagine, the difference is due to the bitness..

    the 32 bit version query the wow6432 registry node, while the 64 bit version does not..

    So, to get all the software installed on a system run both and sum up the results..
