    Locked

    How can I check the version of IE from a login script? I want to upgrade IE 4 to IE 6 but I want to patch any copies of IE 5.x before upgrading.

      Put this at the end of your logon script:

      REGEDIT /E driveletter:\filename.txt “hkey_local_machine\software\microsoft\internet explorer\version vector”
      ECHO The following Registry info for Internet Explorer is for computer %computername% used by %username% >> driveletter:\filename.txt
      ECHO ********** >> driveletter:\filename.txt

      Where “driveletter:\filename.txt” is a mapped drive your clients map to and a central file you want all of these options saved to. For example, if all of your Windows clients map drive S: to a Shared drive, you could use S:\IEVER.TXT in this.
      The logon script will write the info for all your clients to this same txt file, so you only have 1 file to look at.

      Here is the output sent to the TXT file:
      Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\internet explorer\version vector]
      “IE”=”6.0000”
      “VML”=”1.0”

      The following Registry info for Internet Explorer is for computer WORKSTATIONNAME used by USERNAME
      **********

      See the IE value = 6.00? That is the IE version. And I included the computername (will be replaced where I put in WORKSTATIONNAME) and the user who is logged in (where USERNAME will be).

      Hope this helps.
