  • Hi,

    Try the reports : "Computers with specific software registered in Add Remove Programs" and browse for the Software Title called:

    "Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Console"

  • If there is no app listed called exactly that, then there are no clients reporting that particular piece of software.  If you are 100% positive you have at least 1 computer, where you interactively go look in Add/Remove Programs, and with your own eyes see there is an application called "Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Console", then what that means to me is that particular client is not reporting add or remove program data.  That would be a completely different issue--that hardware inventory is not working.

    Otherwise, all else being equal, if your have a working site and clients are reporting normally, if you don't see an application listed in ARP, but see other ones (any other ones), then that specific application simply isn't in your environment.  there's nothing to "add".  Well, you could install it I guess.  Just so that it is there in ARP on a client, just so you can see it as a choice in the report.  But that seems kind of silly to me.  :)

  • Hi,

    If you are referring to the SCCM admin console, the normal hardware inventory reports is the best way.
