Description

The method uses the WMI services to obtain information about the applications installed on the computer that is specified by the ComputerName property and saves this information to the test log.

Declaration

WMI.PostInstalledAppsInfo()

Result None

Applies To

The method is applied to the following object:

Result Value

None.

Remarks

The method only provides information about software that is installed by Windows Installer.

In order for the WMI.PostInstalledAppsInfo method to function properly, the operating system’s WMI Windows Installer Provider component must be installed on the computer whose software list you want to get. This component is installed by default on most Windows operating systems, except for Windows XP x64 Edition and Windows Server 2003.

To verify that the mentioned component is installed, do the following:

  • Open the operating system’s Add or Remove Programs dialog on the target computer.

  • Switch to the Add/Remove Windows Components page.

  • Make sure that the Management and Monitoring Tools | WMI Windows Installer Provider component is checked.

Example

The following example demonstrates how to connect to the WMI service on a local computer and post different information about the computer to the log.

JavaScript, JScript

function Test()
{
  // Specifies the local computer using the ComputerName property
  WMI.ComputerName = ".";

  // Using the ConnectToComputer method
  // WMI.ConnectToComputer(".", "", "");


  // Using the WaitForComputer method
  // WMI.WaitForComputer(".", "", "", 1000000);

  // Posts different information about the computer to the log
  WMI.PostProcessorInfo();
  WMI.PostDrivesInfo();
  WMI.PostInstalledAppsInfo();
  WMI.PostEnvironmentVariableInfo();
  WMI.MaxEventCount = 5;
  WMI.PostEventsInfo();
}

Python

def Test1():
  # Specifies the local computer using the ComputerName property
  WMI.ComputerName = "."

  # Using the ConnectToComputer method
  #WMI.ConnectToComputer(".", "", "");

  # Using the WaitForComputer method
  #WMI.WaitForComputer(".", "", "", 1000000);

  # Posts different information about the computer to the log
  WMI.PostProcessorInfo();
  WMI.PostDrivesInfo();
  WMI.PostInstalledAppsInfo();
  WMI.PostEnvironmentVariableInfo();
  WMI.MaxEventCount = 5;
  WMI.PostEventsInfo();

VBScript

Sub Test
  ' Specifies the local computer using the ComputerName property
  WMI.ComputerName = "."

  ' Using the ConnectToComputer method
  ' Call WMI.ConnectToComputer(".", "", "")


  ' Using the WaitForComputer method
  ' Call WMI.WaitForComputer(".", "", "", 1000000)

  ' Posts different information about the computer to the log
  Call WMI.PostProcessorInfo
  Call WMI.PostDrivesInfo
  Call WMI.PostInstalledAppsInfo
  Call WMI.PostEnvironmentVariableInfo
  WMI.MaxEventCount = 5
  Call WMI.PostEventsInfo
End Sub

DelphiScript

procedure Test;
begin
  // Specifies the local computer using the ComputerName property
  WMI.ComputerName := '.';

  // Using the ConnectToComputer method
  // WMI.ConnectToComputer('.', '', '');


  // Using the WaitForComputer method
  // WMI.WaitForComputer('.', '', '', 1000000);

  // Posts different information about the computer to the log
  WMI.PostProcessorInfo;
  WMI.PostDrivesInfo;
  WMI.PostInstalledAppsInfo;
  WMI.PostEnvironmentVariableInfo;
  WMI.MaxEventCount := 5;
  WMI.PostEventsInfo;
end;

C++Script, C#Script

function Test()
{
  // Specifies the local computer using the ComputerName property
  WMI["ComputerName"] = ".";

  // Using the ConnectToComputer method
  // WMI["ConnectToComputer"](".", "", "");


  // Using the WaitForComputer method
  // WMI["WaitForComputer"](".", "", "", 1000000);

  // Posts different information about the computer to the log
  WMI["PostProcessorInfo"]();
  WMI["PostDrivesInfo"]();
  WMI["PostInstalledAppsInfo"]();
  WMI["PostEnvironmentVariableInfo"]();
  WMI["MaxEventCount"] = 5;
  WMI["PostEventsInfo"]();
}
