I'm working on a Rev stack to inventory software on client computers 
at work and dump the results on an FTP server.  On the Mac side, I 
just generate a report from the Apple System Profiler, but on Windows 
PCs I'm using the DOS "dir /S" command to collect all the filenames 
on each local filesystem. Unfortunately, the "dir" command doesn't 
collect the version information for application files; all I can get 
are filenames, modification dates, and filesizes. I'm trying to get 
the version of files like winword.exe.
