Ok, do you plan to create new section in the XML for that? I attached an
example of script to detect a software. I suggest you to take a look on the
full /FusionInventory/Agent/Task/Inventory/OS hierarchy. The script are not
to understand IMO.
Here you will find the XML format and the "$inventory object" documentation:

Indeed, that's something you can do with OCS. But, psexec (or winexec) can
be here a much simpler alternative in some case. It depends on the number of
machine you want to manage.

If you add new information in the XML, you will need to patch OCS.

For the record, in the coming week, we will release the plugin for GLPI
0.78. With it, you'll be able to
bypass OCS server and so simplify the requirement needed to add new
information in the inventory.
