Retrieve the GUID of Installed Programs

Server Administration

Here’s how to retrieve the GUID of installed programs in Windows. This can be useful in situations where the Event Viewer lists the GUID of a program causing issues, but not the name.

  • Open a command prompt as Administrator.
  • Type the command:wmic product get > C:\\InstalledPrograms.txt
  • The output of this command will be saved in a text file at C:\\InstalledPrograms.txt.
