ESMC "Installed applications" report doesn't show applications from "current user"


Recommended Posts

Some applications allow you to install them only for current user, a good example is Microsoft Teams or One Drive. Information about them is stored in

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

Eset Agent probably doesn't report them to ESMC. Can you fix it so it also reports them?

It's not a bug but a feature. The agent runs in the local system account and gets a list of installed programs from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall.

Well, since it's running with system privilages then he can just get this list from

HKEY_USERS\[USER_SID]\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

I know that works only for users that are currently logged in, but it's still better than nothing and easy to implement.
