Deteremine which user installed a program RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have searched google and SCE 2010. I can run a report that lists the software installed on a computer but not the install date and the user who installed the program. Looking into authoring I noticed a "Install by" and "Install Date". I think are the attributes I need to perform what I want, but do not know how to call those attributes to provide the information needed.

    I have look for at wmi for a possible solution but it appears that wmi cannot do what I want also. Is it even possible to perform such a query? If so how through SCE 2010.

  • Hello,

    Undortunately there is no "software metering" feature in SCE 2010. You cannot use SCE 2010 to find out who installed a software or when the software was installed.

    Thanks,

  • Thanks for the reply confirming what I suspected. Do you know of any Microsoft products that will perform "software metering"? If there isn't a Microsoft product then maybe another vendor whose software will.

     

    Thanks,
