    I have some enhancements for the grouping feature:

    • For grouped applications show just one entry (like "Microsoft Office 2016") and in front of this entry show a [+] icon, so the entry can be expanded and collapsed.
      If users expand it, they see all applications bundled with that product

    • Show all applications (so don't hide any applications) but show them grouped.

    Here are some examples:

    However, this is still several weeks away.

    No problem, important is that you have it on your To-Do list.

    We are planning something along the lines of this, where VulnDetect will group dependencies and possible product bundles as well.

    However, this is still several weeks away.

    Currently I have in VulnDetect the following applications:

    • Microsoft Office 2016
    • Microsoft Access 2016
    • Microsoft Excel 2016
    • Microsoft OneNote 2016
    • Microsoft Outlook 2016
    • Microsoft PowerPoint 2016
    • Microsoft Publisher 2016
    • Microsoft Word 2016

    It would be cool to see only one entry called Microsoft Office 2016 that can be expanded to see all enclosed products.

    Very useful idea, especially for applications that are bundled with other apps (like 7-Zip is delivered with the NVIDIA Drivers).
    So I see 7-Zip only once, but can expand the entry.

    But this feature could also be used to group bundled applications, like Microsoft Office.
    I see an entry Microsoft Office 2016 and can expand it.
    Here I see all apps of the bundle, like Word, Excel, PowerPoint and so on.
