Scripting Question

Create a report of GUID for programs

10/07/2019 128 views

I'm seeing if someone can point me in the right direction. I need to create a report or script that will show me all of the SupportAssist GUIDs for the versions installed on our computers on the network. I know in Software Catalog it shows most of them, but for some versions, it'll only show me the uninstall command.

  • Hey, is the goal here to uninstall all supportassists?

On a machine that has a version of SupportAssist installed that is not showing a GUID run this command to see if it has one.  Some installers do not have GUID - not all programmers follow the same standard.

Open a administrative command window and paste this in.

wmic product where 'name like "%SupportAssist%"' get identifyingnumber,name,vendor,version

The identifying number is the GIUD. 

if you do not get one back there is nothing you can do to get one.

If you do get one you can create a CIR

ShellCommandTextReturn(cmd /c wmic product where 'name like "%SupportAssist%"' get identifyingnumber,name,vendor,version)

then create a report on the CIR
