That would require each application register itself as a particular
"type" of application - which does not happen AFAIK. There is certainly
an API (probably more than one) to enumerate all the software installed,
but I imagine it's up to the programmer to enumerate the specific "type"
Of course, this is based solely upon my experiences and (probably
mis-)conceptions of Windows so take it as such.
