How to list all software installed with IBM Installation Manager

Question & Answer


How do you get a list of all installed software through IBM Installation Manager?


IBM Installation Manager does not record installed software in the operating system package tracking. That means Add/Remove programs under Windows. The IBM Installation Manager uses its own database to know what and where are the installed software.


You can query the IBM Installation Manager to get a list of installed software. Use the console mode of IBM Installation Manager. Consider the following command.

>imcl listInstalledPackages -features -long


  • Windows

    imcl.exe listInstalledPackages -features -long

  • Linux, UNIX, IBM® i and z/OS®

    ./imcl listInstalledPackages -features  -long
