Hello together,
i´m working with Lansweeper for a short time and i need to know, how can i configure a software scan filter or how to exclude software from scanning?

Sorry for my bad english.

Best regards from Germany.

It is not actually possible to exclude software from scanning. Lansweeper scans all software listed in Add/Remove Programs on Windows computers. You can build a software report though that excludes certain software:
  • Open the following built-in report in the Reports tab: "Software: List of software by computer".
  • Hit Edit Report on the left.
  • Hit Save As to save a copy of the report under a different name.
  • Add the following to the Criteria column of the tblSoftwareUni.softwareName expression:
    Not In ('name excluded software 1','name excluded software 2','name excluded software 3')
