This feature is great, but does anybody know how it is detecting the store app? I would like to know which user has a specific app installed but I can't find a way in Lansweeper to tell me which user's profile it's installed under. Does anybody know what registry key it's pulling this info from?

We've noticed the only workstations reporting any Windows Store Apps are those scanned via LS Agent, not IP or Active Directory. Has anyone else noticed this?

Bruce B - Any more information on editing reports would be appreciated. Would like to get rid of Store Apps from all scanning and reports. Thanks.

I find this information useful. We have devices that runs Universal Windows Platform programs installed with the .appx.

Version 9.3.10.7 also includes Windows driver scanning, which is likely also contributing to the overal size of scanned data.

If you'd like to filter Windows store apps out of reports, please refer to this topic: https://www.lansweeper.com/forum/yaf_postst21086_Reporting-on-Windows-software-since-the-addition-of-Windows-Store-software-scanning-in-9-3.aspx#post67189

We're gathering feedback regarding our current implementation of Windows store app scanning and will likely make some changes to separate it more from regular Windows software, as it was scanned before.

Hello, is there a mean to disable this new feature or hide these apps because there are not essentials, view now is to much populated, too long to find information. Thanks.
