How can I find the version of IE on all of the computers on my domain in an automated fashion?
Please do not reference MS KB556019, the script did not work for me.

Your can query for the IE version like this:

cmd /k reg query "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer" /v Version

Maybe dump this to a text file in some way?

Hm, I jst saw that is about the same method the article you already mentioned uses.
Can you give more info on where the script given in that article goes wrong?

Just tried the code I've attached on several systems, works like a charm.
You can run this from a login script and replace the "SomeFile" to a file on your network (maybe the NETLOGON dir) to collect the data.
You can also do without the last "echo" and just use the IE_Ver environment variable in your login script or something.
The script assumes that there is a TEMP directory it can write to.
Good luck :)

@echo off
SET IE_Ver=
SET RegQry="HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer" /v Version
REG.exe Query %RegQry% > %TEMP%\CheckCC.txt
Find /i "Version" < %TEMP%\CheckCC.txt > %TEMP%\StringCheck.txt
FOR /f "Tokens=3" %%b in (%TEMP%\CheckCC.txt) DO SET IE_Ver=%%b
Echo %COMPUTERNAME%,%IE_Ver% >> SomeFile.csv
