HI CBZ9104,

For each software installed on a Windows computer there is a registry key on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall. Each guid number correspond to one software installed on the machine. These informations are base for Add/Remove Programs information.

For example in the following picture yout have the Microsoft Lync 2010 registry information and related info on Add/Remove Program.



From this location Inventory Solution search for Add/Remove Program information and Installed Date information.

So the first troubleshooting step is check this info in the Windows XP or 7 to verify if the source information is wrong.


If the suggestion has helped to solve your problem, please mark the post as a solution.
