Query to locate all Quicktime Installs

Recommended Posts

Hi folks -

 

With the recent information regarding Quicktime on Windows, I need to get a report of all the computers within our organisation that have Quicktime installed.

 

Unfortunately, I am having problems with writing the query required, as I get different results, that also appear rather small (though we suspect ~10 installs on Win7, we believe that the numbers on WinXP should push us closer to 100-150 machines instead of the 20/26 we have)

 

What I am using at the moment is

 

Select
SD.Name0,
SF.FileName
From v_Gs_SoftwareFile SF
Join v_R_System SD on SD.ResourceId = SF.ResourceId
Where SF.FileName Like '%Quicktimeplayer%'

Order By SD.Name0, SF.FileName

 

Which looks for the executable itself. This gives me a different total from

 

SELECT
c.Name0,
a.DisplayName0
FROM v_GS_ADD_REMOVE_PROGRAMS a, v_R_System c
WHERE a.ResourceID = c.ResourceID
AND a.DisplayName0 like '%Quicktime%'
GROUP BY c.Name0, a.DisplayName0
ORDER BY c.name0

 

That displays any versions of Quicktime present in the Add/Remove.

 

Is there a better method out there for this sort of task?

In your second query you will only find x86 versions. use v_ADD_REMOVE_PROGRAMS to get both x86 and x64.

Thanks for that info, Garth. made that change (also applied it to a couple of other reports I've created to confirm I have accurate numbers)

 

Still only brings up a very low number (only added 1 to the total), guess the folks out and about haven't tried installing it on many machines since we upgraded them.

 

Thank you for the tip - If there is another method out there though, can anyone expand on Garth's tip?

OK, I will bite, why do you think the results are wrong? Have you audited the results?
