Software is registered as known software and added to the “known files” folder, by giving it an application name. Now the application will be registered by the next file scan and moved to the All Software folder.
From the All Software folder you can manage the software by adding a license, link to groups, etc. You can edit any file on the software by a right-click on a property and click Edit.
