    What does the Registry Path field show for that application? (you might have to scroll to the right)

    @..., thanks for the reply.

    Here is the path...

    The installer for that application should be cleaning those up. You can write a PowerShell script to do it yourself, but I'd recommend submitting a bug report to that vendor.

    @..., thanks. I'll submit the bug to the vendor. In the meantime, can you give me some pointers as to what the PowerShell script might look like?

    Run this as the first step of your package. If you run it after the install, it will wipe out the key that the install just created and Inventory will show that 0 versions are installed :)

    PS: In my previous posts I tried to 'mention' you but I guess I chose the wrong Colby (two appear in the list), which is why it shows above as "@..."

    Oh weird. I accidentally created a second account a while ago, but I got rid of it. I can't find it in the user list, but it definitely shows up when you try to mention me. Thanks for catching this, I'll keep trying to get rid of the old one :)
