Applications Page

The page of the Computer window that shows all installed application information from the Applications scanner, which is included in the following prebuilt scan profiles; Standard and Applications.

To show, hide, and move columns, click the Customize this grid button (upper left corner) or right-click the column header and select Edit Columns.




The name of the application as displayed in the computer control panel.


The version as displayed in the computer control panel.


The name of the software publisher.

Install Date & Time

The date and time the application was installed, if available.


The command used to uninstall the application. (Enterprise mode required.)

Registry Hive

Name of the Registry Hive where the Application data was extracted.

Registry Path

Registry path where application is registered with Windows. (for example, SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\7-Zip).

Install Date

The date the application was installed, if available (hidden by default).

NOTE: Applications which are installed for a single user (not for "all users") will only show if the user is logged in at the time of scan.


You can uninstall from this page or even create an uninstall package in PDQ Deploy (Enterprise mode required to uninstall and PDQ Deploy required to create a package).

WARNING: Uninstalling the Agent from this page does uninstall the Agent from the target computer; however, PDQ Inventory will still display the Agent as Unavailable and all scans will be stuck in a pending state. To remedy this, follow the instructions listed in Uninstalling the Agent.

To uninstall an application from within PDQ Inventory, right-click it, then select Uninstall. This opens the Run Command Window with the uninstall command entered and ready to run. You can also copy the command and execute it in another way, for example using PDQ Deploy.

To create an uninstall package in PDQ Deploy, right-click the application, then select Create Uninstall Package in PDQ Deploy. This launches PDQ Deploy to a new package window with the uninstall command entered. Configure the remainder of the package to your needs and deploy to uninstall.

Note: Many uninstall commands are not made to run silently and will hang if run, as is. If the command contains /qn as part of the MsiExec.exe /qn /X uninstall string, then PDQ Inventory has configured it to run silently. Otherwise you may need to consult the application documentation to find the proper silent options.
