Virtually every time I reimage/rebuild a Windows machine I create a list of the software I have installed.
Since I always forget how to do this I thought I’d blog about it for future reference.
- Open up cmd.exe
wmicand press enter
- Enter the command
/output:yourfilename.txt product get name,versionand press enter.
This will create a file (yourfilename.txt) in the current working directory with a list of software installed on your machine (for the current user).
For a more comprehensive solution you can also use System Information for Windows (free for personal use).
