I noticed yesterday that on one workstation (Windows 7 Ultimate, 64-bit, all service packs and patches) that the xSI agent had not included D:\Program Files and D:\Program Files (x86) in the locations it scanned. So of course a bunch of programs had been missed.

I suggest that on installation xSI look for all connected writable storage devices which have a ?:\Program Files or ?:\Program Files (x86) directory on them, and either include them or at least prompt.
It may be appropriate also for the SmallBusiness console to show these, and allow remote configuration of the xSI agent to include those extra paths, if they weren't included by default or by user election at install time.

Then, further, as part of on-going change monitoring, the xSI agent should notice any new writable storage devices which appear and on which ever arise a ?:\Program Files or ?:\Program Files (x86) directory, and as above add/ prompt/ centrally manage so that new Program Files locations do not go unnoticed and unmanaged.

thank you.

Thank you again for your suggestions which we will take into consideration.

You may already know this so I am mentioning it “just in case”. You can decide which drives to be scanned by PSI 3 by clicking Settings->Scan individual drives. Then place a check at the drives you would like the PSI to scan.
