    Does anyone know of a database or listing of applications with their .exe footprints? I have a database listing about 1.5 million executables from scanning our 4000 plus PC network. Have identified MS products but not the rest without manually searching Goggle one executable at a time (i.e. not an option).

    Here is another site that will add further definition to what an executable is just in case Pacs does not explain throughly. Pacs is more comprehensive in coverage but AnsersthatWork is more in-depth in explanations.
