Ok we are going to use wmic to create a cir to get the info

first lets get the exact name of the software.
open the software item you want to find and copy the name to the buffer.

Then under software create a new entry

ShellCommandTextReturn(cmd /c wmic product where "name like 'Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013'" get name, installdate)

either force inventory or wait for the cycle to run again and the machines will start populating this CIR

use the wizard to create a report

  • I've created the cir and tested with my device and it worked like a charm. will wait for the inventory over the weekend for the other devices and see what pulls up on Monday. Thanks so much for your assistance!! - 08roba80 5 years ago
  • I hadn't considered creating a CIR. Very nice. - rockhead44 5 years ago
    • leave the where name = out and you will get a nice list of all installed software and date.

      I get a lot of my wmic ideas from this site

The "Show All History" link within each Inventory record will give you the dates but I'm not sure about producing a Report that would include install date if you are looking at a large number of machines.
