The Application Summary Report displays how many instances of one or more applications on Windows VMs are installed in your virtualized infrastructure. Information from this report is retrieved from guest OS scanning. Use this report to help you quickly identify your application licensing requirements for Windows VMs.

The Application Details table shows:

the total number of instances of each application

the number of application instances that reside on in-inventory VMs, out-of-inventory VMs and templates (the total of in-inventory and out-of-inventory templates)

The Application VM List table lists the VMs where each of the applications is installed. By default, the Application VM List table is not included in the report.

You can refine your report results using advanced filters.

A statement at the top of the report reads: "This report is based on X scanned VMs out of a possible Y":

"X scanned VMs" equals the number of Windows VMs that have undergone a guest OS scan and that have at least one application. (This number excludes any Windows 2003 VMs that were scanned but do not have any applications because they do not have the WIN32_Product WMI provider installed.)

"possible Y" equals the total number of Windows VMs in your virtualized infrastructure.

Only the major version number of the application is collected for this report, which means, for example, that if there are versions of one application running on VMs numbered "5.3" and "5.4", the major version number only is reported, which in this case is "5".

In the Application VM List, for VMs in SCVMM managed systems, the Datacenter column provides the name of the closest parent folder.
