Detailed Description

The Get-SilSoftware cmdlet displays a list of all software products installed on computer. Software Inventory Logging collects the data at the point in time that you run the cmdlet. You can specify the ID parameter and Name parameter to filter the installed software products that the cmdlet displays.

Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.
