CNET Editors' review

If you've ever lost a program's product key code or other essential documentation, you can probably appreciate a tool that helps you keep track of all your software. How about All My Software? It's a free application from Bolide that scans your Windows system for all installed software, including support and contact information, links, and even order date and number, if applicable, and saves them in a database you can export to Excel.

All My Software's installation wizard includes a scanning stage that displays files in the registry with the option to exclude them from the database, delete them, or scan them. We chose the default setup, and the All My Software interface opened when the setup wizard closed. This interface is a compact, businesslike dialog that can be dragged around the desktop but not resized. The program's preferences are limited to language, autosave, and database backup reminders. The icon-based toolbar includes some useful extras, such as an Excel export button and one to attempt to uninstall the selected software. The left-hand navigation panel toggles between a software list and a developer-based tree view, while the main view has the familiar look of a virtual form, with entry fields for software title, developer, links, price, and more; many already filled in. There's a field to enter or paste in the registration key for the selected program, which we recommend doing every time you install software, and a Notes section, too. You can also attach files to records, a useful feature. All My Software recommends backing up your personal database to an external drive or device, an online storage site, or network share--anywhere but the software's main folder. We agree, and we saved our records to a thumb drive.

All My Software is freeware that requires free registration, a fairly painless process. Some Vista and Windows 7 users may have trouble with the .chm-format Help file due to a known issue. Obviously a Help file that won't open is a major issue, but we had no trouble using All My Software. It makes it easy for you to centralize your critical software records, back them up, and keep them safe until you need them, which you always do.

    "Unimpressive"

    December 11, 2010  |   By Fletch2015

    Version: All My Software 1.6 build 1106

    Pros

    Shows some URLs and some support sites for software products. Perhaps useful for developers but not so useful for the rest of us.

    Cons

    Does not show registration keys.

    Perhaps useful for developers but not so useful for the rest of us.

    Summary

    Belarc Adviser offers the same data on programs for free.

    "Folks need to go to the link provided below."

    October 4, 2010  |   By chuckula

    Version: All My Software 1.6 build 1106

    Pros

    http://www.bolidesoft.com/allmysoftware.html
    It's free now. Go look.

    Cons

    Honestly I haven't downloaded it yet and can't whine about it. I'm still on the fence.

    Summary

    I had been doing some research for duplicate MP3 removal software and ran across the company that makes the All My Software program and a few others. This program is now free. For whatever reason, the cats at Bolide Software are no longer doing anything else with this program and have shelved it. I guess they are working more on the other software they have on their site.

    I'm still somewhat interested in the program, but without any further development or possibly support, it's really not a good idea. Besides that, what's to say the program isn't broadcasting the programs on your computer to God knows who and it's opening up some way to hit you with a Trojan or some other malware? Just a thought I had, but it's admittedly a paranoid thought and there is no sense in passing judgment on Bolide Software just because I've never heard of them and the idea of an unknown company being able to know every program and other assorted information on my computer is not a very good feeling.

    The concept is pretty darn cool, admittedly.
