Hi, I have been wondering about implementing this for quite a while now. I don't know if this possible or in what language it can be done, so I came to this board hoping to get some answers.
I have a Django/Python web application and have the need to list installed client software on the client computer that matches entries in our database. I have thought about doing this in Python, but this seems impossible seeing that the execution takes place at the server.
All I want to achieve is to detect installed software (registry), I don't want to edit anything on the client's computer.
Is there some way to do this? Is it perhaps possible through signed Java applets?
