Login Script to Collect Installed Softwares on PC Desktop/Laptops on Network

Here is the Login script which can be used to collect the installed softwares list on PC Desktops/Laptops over network. This script is used by me in production for more than a year. If you have questions on this, feel free to

post your questions in comments


Script Start Here.. Copy from below...

You need to add this line after 6th line in the script.


Dim sFileName
sFileName = "OUTPUT_PATH_LOCATION" & sCompName & "_Software.txt"

Replace, OUTPUT_PATH_LOCATION with the path where you want to save the output.

Hope it helps..!
