Example:

Adobe X Std (ver 10.1.2) Managed install

Distribution based on AD Group (Software-AdobeXStd)

Works great until K1000 box patches Adobe X Std (to ver 10.1.3) now users get the managed install over and over because of versions.

Now I have added a new software inventory called Adobe Acrobat X Std ALL and I have included a custom inventory rule to try to prevent this.

FileVersionGreaterThan(C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 10.0\Acrobat\Acrobat.exe, 9.9.99) Or FileVersionLessThan(C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 10.0\Acrobat\Acrobat.exe, 10.9.99) Or FileVersionGreaterThan(C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 10.0\Acrobat\Acrobat.exe, 9.9.99) Or FileVersionLessThan(C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 10.0\Acrobat\Acrobat.exe, 10.9.99) Or FileExists(C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 10.0\Acrobat\Acrobat.exe) or FileExists(C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 10.0\Acrobat\Acrobat.exe)

This is where my problem arises:

1) I'm not sure what checks will allow the install to procede (maybe I'm missing it in the documentation)

B) I need to allow the install if the version is less than 10.0.00 or if it is not on the system

Any help would be appreciated!

 

Thanks

 

Answer Summary:
You can copy a txt file to the local machine along with your install. Then inventory that txt file in your custom inventory. If it does exist than it ran. Make sure it is the last step in your CMD file.
