Get Installed Programs

I just learned about the WMI class "win32_product", which shows much of the same info as "Add/Remove Programs".  It works like any other WMI class.  I will use it to find the version of a program installed on several dozen machines and whether any are out-of-date, like this:

Get-WMIObject win32_product -Filter "name='$programName'" -computername $comps | Select-Object __Server,identifyingnumber, name, version | Group-object version

Visit this Technet page for more info on using WMI classes:
