Software installed manually now a requirement to update via GPO
Now I need to install an update to the software. Ive modified the batch file and was going to set up a GPO computer startup script then I realised I need to tell the batch to only install the software if the old version is installed. I’ve looked at program files x86 and the files there are identical, only dates are different, so how do I tell my startup script to skip the install, maybe a registry entry or DLL is different, not sure if this can be written into a batch file or not?
Look for a version in the registry.
No version value there, so I can look in the Uninstall folder (also a great place to find uninstall strings):
Some 64-bit program settings are in the WOW6432NODE folder:
Obviously, use your software name in lieu of Notepad++ or Microsoft Edge.
