upon searching the net I came across a veritable treasure trove of scripts and utilities all in VBS form.
including a little vbs script that allows you to produce a CSV of all your installed applications.
They are all Vbscript tools by Bill James, who not surprisingly is a Microsoft MVP.
the Page is HERE its well worth a look.
some of the other utilities available are:
* Ansi Character Code Generator
* Create Folder Context Menu Item
* Extract Files from Windows Setup CABs
* Hex to Decimal Converter
* Random Password Generator
* Registry Search Tool
and heaps more, while most of them are things that with time you could do manually or purchase a product to do,
these are all here and readily accessable and very much time saving.

Would you happen to know if this can be run in a "silent mode"? What I'm looking for is a way to get rid of the initial window of the script to appear as well as the "scan has finished, would you like to view the results now? (Yes/No)" window. It would be great if I could just double-click on the script and after a few seconds the .txt file pops out. This way I can deploy the script to run as an AI package but as it is now, the user has to press "OK" initially, and "Yes/No" when the scan is finished.

This one's great (no install required, opensource freeware) and can save installed program list with all relevant details (publisher, version, etc) into HTML/CSV/RTF formats:
