Distinguish between EXE and MSI in Scan Configuration Manager Database for Supported Products

When using the "Scan Configuration Manager Database for Supported Products" feature, if there is both an EXE and MSI installer for the app (e.g. VLC, 7-Zip, Snagit) the scan returns the same count for both, indicating that it is not able to distinguish which "edition" is installed on a given machine.


The information is available in the ConfigMgr database, so it ought to possible for the scan to tell them apart.
