Detected applications - distinquish between running and installed?

I enjoy Qualys's ability to detect applications, but I need a quick clarification. When I search for Applications among hosts, am I searching for applications detected as installed but not necessarily running? For instance, let's say I'm looking for "samba" and I find it on many hosts; I wouldn't think that necessarily means its running. For me to detect whether or not something is "running" I believe I need to search Ports/Services. I apologize if this is obvious - just need to confirm I'm thinking correctly regarding detected Applications.
