  • It will not be displayed in 'installed programs' if it does not register itself in 'add/remove programs'.

  • It should be noted that user applications will not be collected by CMCB, even if they are listed within the Programs and Features dialog box. You will need to script the collection of this or look at 3rd party software.

  • You could also use the software inventory in the client settings and add spotify.exe to the files to look for. You can then query the SCCM database using SoftwareFile/SoftwareInventory tables...

         COMP.UserName0 AS [User],
         COMP.Manufacturer0 AS [Make],
         COMP.Model0 AS [Model],
         COMP.Name0 AS [Computer],
         SYS.SystemType0 AS [Architecture],
         SWI.ModifiedDate AS [Install Date],
         SWF.FileName AS [Filename],
         SWF.FileDescription AS [Product],
         SWF.FileVersion AS [Version]
         INNER JOIN SoftwareInventory SWI
              on SYS.ResourceID = SWI.ClientId
         INNER JOIN SoftwareFile SWF
              on SWF.ProductId = SWI.ProductId
    	  on SYS.ResourceID = COMP.ResourceID
         WHERE SWF.FileName = 'spotify.exe'

    You can then obviously go and use that query with Power BI or create collections or whatever you want to do with that data.

    I've written an article that goes in depth into it here.
