Does this work for you?

SELECT vc.Name, sp.Name, inst.InstallDate

FROM vRM_Computer_Item vc

JOIN Inv_InstalledSoftware inst

   ON inst._ResourceGuid = vc.Guid

   AND inst.InstallFlag = 1

JOIN ResourceAssociation ra

   ON ra.ChildResourceGuid = inst._SoftwareComponentGuid

   AND ra.ResourceAssociationTypeGuid = '9D67B0C6-BEFF-4FCD-86C1-4A40028FE483'

JOIN vSoftwareProduct sp

   ON sp.Guid = ra.ParentResourceGuid

Thanks, it works.

How can it be that you use the vRM_Computer_Item insted of the vComputer?

vRM_Computer_Item performs much better than vComputer when working with large data sets.  In my testing here (with over 200,000 computers in 1 database) there is a very noticeable difference.  However, if you are working with less than 10 or 20k computers then vComputer will work just fine...:-)
