Oracle VirtualBox Expansion Pack check

I have been working with Oracle on trying to determine what devices have the VirtualBox expansion pack installed. SNOW is not picking it up in the installed software scans. SNOW sees the VirtualBox application installed, which is free, but the expansion pack requires a license, according to Oracle. I need to be able to prove to Management which machines have it installed before we buy the number of licenses Oracle thinks we should buy. 


Oracle provided a command line, but it needs to be run on each machine. No way to easily do this across the Globe.

This is what they provided:


You can try the below options to check:



Linux / MacOS: VBoxManage list extpacks

Windows: VBoxManage.exe list extpacks


File presence



and this has to be executed on each laptop/desktop environment to verify the status.


Can this be scripted within the SNOW client to gather this information? If so, can someone walk me through it? 

Or know another way to find this installation? 


Thank you.
