Verify Windows architecture in Scripting


I am creating a script for installing Google Chrome.

However I had to create a script for each architecture (x86 and x64).

I could not finish the script in x64 version because it does not finish the installation. How do I create a script that checks whether it is x86 or x64 before installing? And depending on the answer, do you run different installation packages?







  
  





  


    
      
    

    

      
      

      
      

    

  

  

    

    
      
    

    
      
      

      
      

      
      

    

  





Thank you!

Top Answer

If you are using the K1000 then you could put this as a verify task:

Verify a registry value is exactly...
Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment
Name: PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE
Equal to: x86

32 bit will be on the Success side and 64 bit will be on the remediation side.

  • This really works. When I use Google Chrome, what is the best option to see if the program has actually been installed? - lpansarini 4 years ago
    • Normally after the install process, I would put a runkbot 4 0 so that the Kace inventory gets updated.

      Launch a program:
      Directory: $(KACE_INSTALL)
      File: runkbot.exe
      Parameters: 4 0 - Desktop Jockey 4 years ago
      • Ok, I got it. But is there any best practice to see if the program was installed correctly in the script? In my case, I'm releasing this script to the end user, and tell him if the software was installed or not - lpansarini 4 years ago
      • I said this because my park is almost 5000 computers and I can not update the inventory for every installation I make - lpansarini 4 years ago
      • I also work in a large challenging environment.
        I just create a label for that software and follow the deployment through the label.

        If you have the script set to break on error then it will fail if your software returns any code other than 0.

        If you would like to add redundancy, then you can verify that the software GUID was placed in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\XXXXXX - Desktop Jockey 4 years ago

If %PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE% == x86 set archtype=x86
If %PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE% == AMD64 set archtype=x64

If %archtype%==x86 GOTO X86
If %archtype%==x64 GOTO X64

:X86
echo this is an IA32 system

GOTO END

:X64
echo this is an EM64T/AMD64 system

GOTO END

:END


I would setup two different installs and collect the info of the architecture using a device label, since you can reuse these labels...

  • It works, but it is not fully functional for installations with software that are inside Kace already, but with softwares in dependence. Thank you - lpansarini 4 years ago
