Inventory Agent cannot find applications installed from Microsoft Store

Jump to solution

Hi,

We have a problem where Flexera cannot find applications installed from Microsoft Store.
We have seen that if you install PowerBI from norrmal installation files, the agent finds it but if you install PowerBI from Microsoft Store, the agent does not find it.

I guess it could be that the installer file installs it in Program Files and Microsoft Store installs it in the users profle.

The question then is, is this by design or can we add paths to the inventory agent so it can search the profiles as well?

Hi Anders,

Yes, you can modify the existing definitions in the Application Recognition Library (ARL) - Look in the "All Applications" view and for Unrecognised Evidence too.

Any changes made to existing definitions will be marked as "Flexera (Extended)" in the source.

I'd suggest testing in your UAT environment first, validating the results and then moving to Prod. You can also let Flexera Support know if you believe there is a problem with the definition and we will endevour to correct it as soon as possible.
