    Yes Spiceworks can do that. It uses WMI to get the data, so you could probably look for a script to get it wihout installing the whole monitoring program.

    Here are a couple of examples of scripts that will do what you want. They are a little too big to list the whole script here. http://www.interclasse.com/scripts/SoftwareMeteringCLS.php http://www.billsway.com/vbspage/ On the second link, scroll down or search for "List Installed Programs". Also note that both of these, and Spiceworks, or Kaseya (which I use) and most others are only showing you software that is listed in the registry, and has been installed with Microsoft's Windows Installer (or other commercial installers like InstallShield or InstallAware).
