PROBLEM: We wanted to know who had installed Office XP via a NAL shortcut delivered by ZENworks.

SOLUTION: I created a batch file that was called from the login script and got it to output usernames to a text file. One text file for yes (installed) and one text file for no (not installed).

EXAMPLE

@ECHO OFF
CLS
C:
IF EXIST C:\PROGRAM FILES\MICROSOFT OFFICE\OFFICE10\EXCEL.EXE
ECHO %USERNAME% TYPE > H:\YES.TXT
IF NOT EXIST C:\PROGRAM FILES\MICROSOFT OFFICE\OFFICE10\EXCEL.EXE
ECHO %USERNAME% TYPE > H:\NO.TXT
EXIT
