on my first scan with the 2.0 beta it is listing my program number at 136, yet on the previous PSI scan (older version) the total program number was 188.
is this a feature of the beta version or is it missing these programs because it is the beta version?
please put my mind at ease, many thanks in advance...

Please ignore post
I expanded the programs on the results page and counted the multiple programs across the board and it tallied up with previous number.
I would like it to be as it was in the previous version where all your programs are on one page and the option to open folder to view file button was on the page.
Once again, sorry about the false alarm.

Hi,

In the PSI 2.0 Beta, the mechanism for scanning has not changed radically, and the PSI still detects every program it did before (If anything, it detects more programs). However, a few of the specific changes in the 2.0 Beta could make it appear that some programs have disappeared.

One is that the PSI now tries to group several detections of the same program as one entry, and only counts it as one. This mean that if you, for example, have 5 installations of Google Chrome 5.x, only 1 will be counted and shown in the statistics. This is to avoid the confusion caused by "Zombie Files" (Upgrade leftovers), which was a common issue with older versions.

You can still see every detected instance by expanding the program entry under "Results". If you double-click the entry, a list with the appropriate statuses for each program.

Another is that the PSI now by default only scans the root drive (Which is usually C:), and the drive containing "Program Files" (Usually also C:). To scan other drives, you can go to the Settings tab and choose which drives you wish to scan under "Drives", simply by setting a checkbox next to the appropriate drive.

hope this helps.
