Computers with this AND that installed

    Hi Rich,
    I know this comes late, but in case you weren't able to resolve this or others are having difficulty with scanning for multiple applications, I thought I'd offer a possible solution. See the attached images for reference.

    In the image, This_AND_That-nowork, you get the impression that filtering will return all computers that Have Outlook AND Office installed, but this is not correct. What this is saying is:

    • List all computers with an application name that contains Outlook AND
    • Where that application name [Outlook] matches the following expression...

    The reason for this is to group similar things. For instance, I want to find Office versions greater than 15. In this case, you want it grouped so that you match: Computer has Office AND version > 15. Both conditions must match for one application (Office) to work. If it weren't built that way and you had Office version 14 and Flash version 16, it would return a true value, which you wouldn't want.

    So, what you want to do (see other image, This_AND_That) is to say ALL of the following conditions must be met:

    • All computers with an application name that contains Outlook AND
    • All computers with an application that matches the following expression...

    I hope that answers your question and explains the logic why you need to use multiple group filters.
