    Greg,

    You mentioned during the “we speak geek” presentation that you still had to play with the XML portion of the application to figure out other things. I noticed you were using [xml] to convert it to something you could work with. I found this one online and will probably save you the trouble:
    [Microsoft.ConfigurationManagement.ApplicationManagement.Serialization.SccmSerializer]::DeserializeFromString($_.SDMPackageXML,$True) where $_ is one application. Meaning you could do:
    $CMApps = Get-CMApplication | %{ [Microsoft.ConfigurationManagement.ApplicationManagement.Serialization.SccmSerializer]::DeserializeFromString($_.SDMPackageXML,$True) }

    Then checking if the apps is task sequence enabled is as easy as $CMApps | AutoInstall -eq $false | Select-Object Title
    or checking the deployment type requisites $CMApps[20].DeploymentTypes.Requirements.Name -Like “Windows Servers*” …etc.

    Hope that helps,

    Marlon
