Inventory scan do not collect Computer environment variable - install level value correctly.

If the value get change from 6 to 8 , computer should move the group from 6 to 8 .

This is happening to few computers. Inventory is working and it shows install level value 6, but local machine's env variable it shows 8.

WBEM.INV  file has the correct value added.
