About using the Software Product dialog box to manage software
The Software Product dialog box appears within the Software view and Software Catalog window. The Software view is an enhanced console view that was added to the Manage menu in the Symantec Management Console. The Software Product dialog box lets you review, add, and edit information about the software products.
In the Software view, the Software Product dialog box is available by clicking Software > Installed Software > Newly Discovered Software. Then select a software product from the center list pane and click Manage this software in the software details pane.
In the Software Catalog window, the Software Product dialog box is available from the Managed software products and Unmanaged software subpanes. The dialog box is available by clicking the software product's link in the Unmanaged software subpane. It is available by clicking the software product's link in the Managed software products subpane. It is available by selecting a software product in the Managed software products and clicking the pencil icon. It is also available when you click Managed software products > Add Product.
The Software Product dialog box also lets you perform key software management tasks. You can identify the filter rules that define a software product. You can meter and track the usage of a software product. You can select software packages to deliver. You can also track software product licenses.
You can also allow specific user roles to perform the specific key tasks that relate to software management from the Software Product dialog box. To enable the user role to perform these key tasks, you must assign the user role-specific Software Management privileges.
If you want to change or add the icon for a software product using the Change... icon in the upper right, note that only .png and .jpg images are supported. Make sure that you are running as the local administrator. Only local administrators who are running their own account with administrator privileges can upload a file to the server. If you are not running in this mode, you cannot change or add the icon for a software product. You may be able to work around this constraint. Before you log on to the console, right-click in Internet Explorer and click Run as administrator.
