Repository files navigation

This is a simple library that can retrieve the list of installed applications in Windows.

It is based on ListPrograms which is in turn based on a VB Script linked from a StackOverflow Post

My purpose is fairly limited, so haven't replicated all of the functionality. In particular, the following is still to be done


This module is not in the maven repositories, but it should be very easy to install it locally

$ git clone
$ cd JavaListApps
$ mvn install

You can then include it in your pom.xml



The usage is very simple

Map<String, Software> list = ListApps.getInstalledApps(false);

for(Software soft: list.values()) {
    System.out.println(soft.getDisplayName() + ": " + soft.getPublisher());
