In the Options Set, Collector tab, under the Software Collection section, there is a field where you can add directories to be skipped during the software scan. That field does not accept the %windir% varible prior to IR 15

Fixed in ZENworks Asset Management 7 Interim Release 15 or newer

Interim Releases can be scheduled to run automatically or can be downloaded manually at https://download.novell.com. The Interim releases can be set up within the ZAM Manager for the Task server to check the site on a scheduled basis, and download and apply them automatically. Please refer to the Help Section details of how to set up automatic downloads if desired.

Each interim release is cumulative. If Interim Release 10 or Interim Release 15 is not available due to a newer interim release being placed on the website, be assured that the code needed is in the later release.
