Is it possible to track a specific product or filename? For example, is it possible look for a file named sample.dll, 1024 bytes, dated 02/01/2002?
This can be accomplished by creating a Special Group. The following document describes a process for creating a special group to report a software product in the inventory scan. This example does this for specific games installed by Windows but can be applied to other applications.
Note: DOS applications require additional steps not listed in this document.
Each client computer is configured by default to do a complete software inventory once a week, generally Sunday at 2:00. In order to get a software inventory to run on each computer sooner, you will need to modify the policy for the software inventory or navigate to the NSCap share on the Notification Server from each client computer and run the AeXInvSoln.exe file manually.
After this software scan has been run, navigate to the \Program Files\Altiris\express\Inventory directory on the client. The .nsi file the scan should appear in the directory. Example, AeX SW Solitaire.nsi. The existence of this file should guarantee that the item will show up in the inventory listing.
