Delta inventory cannot track removed software actually. Only full inventory tracks removed software.

The idea is improve the Delta inventory to be able to track removed software.

Minimally this should remove references to software that is no longer in Add/Remove Programs on Windows.

When a software is no longer in Add/Remore Programs in Windows (was desinstalled) the Delta Inventory can identify it and when the inventory is process by the SMP, the software receive a 0 value on InstallFlag collum in Inv_AddRemoveProgram.

When the Full Inventory results from the same machine is processed by the SMP the software with InstallFlag = 0 is removed from Inv_AddRemoveProgram.

Is important have sure that default/custom reports are using conditions to verify the InstallFlag value while querying about installed software.

I'm testing this In ITMS 7.5 enviroment and the InstallFlag and reports are working very well as designed.
