I want a batch file to do the following.

I have the install section of it working, I just need the if statement.

It should go as follows:

IF office = 2000 then run

start /w \\UNCPath\Templates.exe /s
start /w \\UNCPath\PowerPoint_Addin_Office_2000.exe /s
start /w \\UNCPath\Image_Library.exe /s

IF office = 2003 then run

start /w \\UNCPath\Templates.exe /s
start /w \\UNCPath\PowerPoint_Addin_Office_2003.exe /s
start /w \\UNCPath\Image_Library.exe /s

How can I achieve this?

Thanks

You can always check the reg key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\xx.x
xx.x = 10.0 ~ Office XP
xx.x = 11.0 ~ Office 2003

if you can use a vbscript, then here is a script returning office ver:

I think it would be easier to execute some commands through vbscript, then reading registry through batch code
