this maybe what you're looking for


i would generally do something like the following for checking machines for a registry using psexec where Computers.txt would contain the list of machines i need to check

C:\psexec @computers.txt -c regcheck.bat


@echo off


set regpath=HKLM\

set regvalue=

set regdata=

reg query "%regpath%" /v "%regvalue%" | find /i "%regdata%"

if errorlevel 0 GOTO FOUND

Echo %Computername% Registry Not Found >> <text file>


Echo %Computername% Registry Found >> <text file>
