wmic product on the local machine. You can also use wmic /NODE:computername get product on remote machines. It will take a while.

Thank you. But it didn't return the list from Control's Panel Add/Remove. It returns some installed programs, probably, the ones installed using windows installer. – tenshimsm Jun 20 '13 at 19:55
It is going to be helpful anyway – tenshimsm Jun 24 '13 at 19:54
