How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Allow Application Detection to use SHA-1 HASH of a file.

Allow Application Detection to use SHA-1 HASH of a file to determine if its installed.

Baseline Configs can test if a file has a particular HASH, but won't let you remediate it (That would be the IDEAL scenario)

So, we deploy an app that puts the CORRECT file into the location. Using Application Detection, there is no way (other than a VBSCRIPT) to detect if the CORRECT file was moved into place so that the deployment doesn't occur over and over.

We can natively get the SHA-1 HASH (see baselines) so it shouldn't be THAT hard to integrate into application detection.
