      Previously, puppet resource package didn't display all installed programs as there was a new field added to the registry keys named QuietDisplayName. We've now fixed that so those items can now be managed with the Puppet built-in Windows package resource.

      Description

      The Programs and Features view of Windows Server 2012 R2 is displaying McAfee Agent in Version 4.8.0.887.

      However, the execution of the following command in the Windows Command Prompt as Administrator

      puppet resource package
      

      returns the following output where the McAfee Agent is not displayed:

      package { 'McAfee VirusScan Enterprise':
        ensure => '8.8.04001',
      }
      package { 'Microsoft Silverlight':
        ensure => '5.1.30514.0',
      }
      package { 'Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable - x64 9.0.30729.6161':
        ensure => '9.0.30729.6161',
      }
      package { 'Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable - x86 9.0.30729.4148':
        ensure => '9.0.30729.4148',
      }
      package { 'Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable - x86 9.0.30729.6161':
        ensure => '9.0.30729.6161',
      }
      package { 'Puppet Agent (64-bit)':
        ensure => '1.2.2',
      }
      package { 'VMware Tools':
        ensure => '9.4.12.2627939',
      }
      ...
      

      In comparison, on Windows Server 2008 R2 with installed McAfee Agent in Version 4.6.0.2292 it is displayed on the Programs and Features view and also by puppet resource package:

      package { 'McAfee Agent':
        ensure => '4.6.0.2292',
      }
      package { 'McAfee VirusScan Enterprise':
        ensure => '8.8.02004',
      }
      package { 'Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.2':
        ensure => '4.5.51209',
      }
      package { 'Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable - x64 9.0.30729.6161':
        ensure => '9.0.30729.6161',
      }
      package { 'Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable - x86 9.0.30729.4148':
        ensure => '9.0.30729.4148',
      }
      package { 'Puppet Agent (64-bit)':
        ensure => '1.2.1',
      }
      package { 'VMware Tools':
        ensure => '9.4.12.2627939',
      }
      ...
