How to create a report based on scanned registry keys

Last updated on December 02 2014

In the example below we want to retrieve the version number of our Firefox browser’s Flash plugin, for all Windows computers. We know that this information is stored in the Version value of the registry key below, but want to retrieve the data stored in this value, 11.5.502.135 for instance.



To scan for this specific registry value, do the following:

  • Browse to the following section of the Lansweeper web console: Configuration\Scanning Setup\Item Wait Time

  • Make sure that the Enabled checkbox is ticked for the REGISTRY item, indicating that registry scanning is enabled.

  • Browse to the following section of the Lansweeper web console: Configuration\Scanning Setup\Custom Scanning

  • Hit the Add registry key to scan button in the Registry Scanning section of the page.
  • You will be presented with a popup window. Select the registry value’s root key from the Rootkey dropdown, enter the remainder of the registry path into the Regpath field, enter the name of the registry value into the Regvalue field and hit Ok

  • Rescan your assets by clicking the Assets link at the top of the web console, ticking the checkboxes in front of the assets and hitting the Rescan button on the left.

  • To view the scan results for a single asset, browse to the following section of the asset’s webpage: Config\Scanned info\Registry keys

  • To view the scan results for all of your assets, run the report below and replace SOFTWARE\MozillaPlugins\ and Version with any Regpath and Regvalue you’ve submitted for scanning.

    Select Top 1000000 tsysOS.Image As icon, tblAssets.AssetID, tblAssets.AssetUnique, tblAssets.Domain, tblRegistry.Regkey, tblRegistry.Valuename, tblRegistry.Value, tblRegistry.Lastchanged From tblAssets Inner Join tsysOS On tsysOS.OScode = tblAssets.OScode Inner Join tblRegistry On tblAssets.AssetID = tblRegistry.AssetID Inner Join tblAssetCustom On tblAssets.AssetID = tblAssetCustom.AssetID Where tblRegistry.Regkey Like '%SOFTWARE\MozillaPlugins\' And tblRegistry.Valuename = 'Version' And tblAssetCustom.State = 1 Order By tblAssets.AssetUnique
