VMware Tools v11 and appinfo

I have installed v11 tools on a dev Windows 2019 VM as to see what type of info is published by the appinfo plugin. I just assumed that I could query it via powercli / get-vm but I am unable to find the property. Anyone else have luck finding it?


appInfo – Collects the information about running applications inside the guest and publishes the information to a guest variable.
