Customer Question

Is there a method (or batch file) to determine what version of Adobe Reader, Flash, Shockwave, Chrome, Internet Explorer and Java are currently installed on a workstation. I work on a lot of network workstations that I need to keep all of the above on the same versions across the network.

Is the batch file or other routine, supposed to report results to the command line, or to a remote location on the LAN, or farther away on the internet?
