Script To Check IE Version Remotely

Medium Priority

I found a script, but I dont quite understand how to run it.  It seems like a collection of DOS command that I guess I could paste into a .bat file, but this did not work.

MS KB556019

What I'd like to do, is somehow find out what version of IE all of the windows xp machines have on my server 2003 domain.

Can someone explain how to deploy this script?
@echo off
 
Srvlist=C:\Temp\Srvlist.txt
 
Echo Computer Name, Internet Explorer Version >> Result.csv
 
SET IE_Ver=
 
For /F Tokens=* %%a In (%srvlist%) Do (
 
Set Comp_name=%%a
 
Set RegQry=\\%%a\HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer /v Version
 
REG.exe Query %RegQry% > CheckCC.txt
 
Find /i "Version" < CheckCC.txt > StringCheck.txt
 
FOR /f Tokens=3 %%b in (CheckCC.txt) DO SET IE_Ver=%%b
 
Echo %Comp_name, %IE_Ver% >> Result.csv
 
)

Save the list of computers in the srvlist.txt as one computer name on each line and run the script. The script will query the registry remote and save the result in result.csv

I tried that - populating the Srvlist.txt file with multiple computers, one computer, computername, FQDN, didn't work.  I then decided to do it at command line - cmd.

Set RegQry=\\%%a\HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer /v Version
 
REG.exe Query %RegQry% > CheckCC.txt

that part is what gives off an error thats i"nvalid key name"

Do you get a value in %RegQry% variable?
echo %RegQry%
I see a minor typo on line 21, %Comp_name% variable is missing trailing %

I gave up on this, and used psinfo instead.  It was a much more simple and effecive solution.
