Whether you have just a few computers or a large network, a software inventory tool can make it easier to quickly know what you have and how it's being used.
The Microsoft Software Inventory Analyzer (MSIA) is a free tool available for download that can help you with your software inventory. It is built specifically to be a starting point to working with SAM.
You can use the MSIA to scan and inventory the Microsoft software that is installed on a single computer, or on multiple computers throughout a network. It generates a report that provides details of all installed Microsoft products, including the type and the number of licenses. The MSIA will work with networks that have 250 or fewer computers. The latest MSIA 5.1 features enable you to:
Identify and report all installed Microsoft products listed under Add or Remove Programs.
Consolidate the MSIA report with the Microsoft Licensing Statement (MLS) report (.xls only).
The MSIA will located only Microsoft software. However., the results of the scan performed by the MSDIA are completely confidential and are not sent to Microsoft.
