In reply to Peter:

I think I would go for prompting the user to enter the required data at registration time (with the option to leave items blank where not known) rather than trying to automate its derivation. This would be much the same information that is supplied during the packaging process.

It should also be possible to re-register of course, in case an application has been updated without installing a package.

In fact this sort of thing might be essential, to avoid complaints on installation about missing software that you actually have, but wasn't installed as a package.
