Check IE version

By JustinF ·
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.

Check IE version

by Joseph Moore In reply to Check IE version

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.
