x86 & x64 duplicates returned in installed application scan

Am I misremembering, or did I read somewhere that the PMPC team had come up with a way to only show the true "bitness" of an application in the "scan installed applications that are also supported in our catalog" with Intune?  Currently, that scan feature shows a duplicate number for both x86 & x64, even if no x86 version is installed.

Hey JoeH,

Unfortunately, that isn't the case.
Intune doesn't collect app architecture information from the devices.
So, if one device has "Google Chrome" installed, the Scan feature will show "1" device to both Google Chrome x64 and x86.

It only works correctly for software which the DisplayName contains the architecture: e.g. Notepad++ (x64).
