I need to build a query to count the number of computers that have installed a especific software product....

I have tried  with select count(*) instruction, but it does not work.

How can i do it?

thansk in advance

RE: queries in SMS

First, find the software name on your sms database under the table "SoftwareProduct"
Create a new query.
Under Criteria, add a software category.  "Software Products" or "Software Files"
insert the Product Name, Version, Whatever.

Run the query, and there ya go!
Of course, this is all for naught if Software Discovery is not enabled.

Good luck!

RE: queries in SMS

Patricia this is the qeury we use...

select distinct sys.Name, sys.LastLogonUserName, sys.OperatingSystemNameandVersion, sys.ResourceId, sys.ResourceType, swfile.FileName, swfile.FileSize from  SMS_G_System_SoftwareFile as swfile inner join SMS_R_System as sys on sys.ResourceId = swfile.ResourceID where swfile.FileName like ##PRM:SMS_G_System_SoftwareFile.FileName## and sys.OperatingSystemNameandVersion not like "%server%" order by sys.Name

Hope this helps!
