Custom Inventory Rule for Windows Install Date

07/20/2015 1246 views
I created a custom inventory rule to show Computers that had windows installed since Jan 1, 2015. 

RegistryValueGreaterThan(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion, InstallDate, 1420070400)

However this does not work. Any advice on how to create custom inventory rules and labels based on Windows Install Date? 1420070400 is the Unix time stamp which is used to tell the install date and time of Windows installation.

  • Is it possible to make this into a label or smart label?
    • no they left that field out of the smart device label, I will work on a cir that works for this so you can attach a label to the cir

Ok I was able to create CIRs

for 64bit windows:
RegistryValueReturn(HKLM64\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion, InstallDate, dword)

for 32bit windows
RegistryValueReturn(HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion, InstallDate, dword)

then you can create a 64 and 32 smart labels against these cir's

A CIR is unnecessary to get this info.  A simple wizard report will work
