Powershell scripting question

I was writing a little script to tell which versions of .net framework are installed.  In powershell I wrote the following but am getting an error stating that there is nothing to match with the -eq operator.  I am new to powershell.  What am I doing wrong?

$NETv4 = "hklm:\software\microsoft\Net Framework Setup\NDP\v4"
$NETv35 = "hklm:\software\microsoft\Net Framework Setup\NDP\v3.5"
$NETv30 = "hklm:\software\microsoft\Net Framework Setup\NDP\v3.0"
$NETv20 = "hklm:\software\microsoft\Net Framework Setup\NDP\v2.0"
$NETv11 = "hklm:\software\microsoft\Net Framework Setup\NDP\v1.1.4322"


IF (Test-Path -Path $NETv4 -eq $True) {Write-Host ".Net Framework Version 4 is installed"}
IF (Test-Path -Path $NETv35 -eq $true) {Write-Host ".Net Framework Version 3.5 is installed"}
IF (Test-Path -Path $NETv30 -eq $true) {Write-Host ".Net Framework Version 3.0 is installed"}
IF (Test-Path -Path $NETv20 -eq $true) {Write-Host ".Net Framework Version 2.0 is installed"}
IF (Test-Path -Path $NETv11 -eq $true) {Write-Host ".Net Framework Version 1.1 is installed"}

Is there a way to either loop the values through or use an array so I don't have to write a different line for each version?

Hi Childersj,
You do not need the $true variable.
Just test like this:
IF (Test-Path -Path $NETv4) {Write-Host ".Net Framework Version 4 is installed"}

And it will work fine.

Try this one:
dir "hklm:\software\microsoft\Net Framework Setup\NDP\v*" | %{
    if($_.name -match "Net\sFramework\sSetup\\NDP\\v(\d.\d)"){
        ".Net Framework Version $($matches[1]) is installed"
    }
}

Open in new window

Actually in your original code the parentheses are missing:
IF ((Test-Path -Path $NETv4) -eq $True) {Write-Host ".Net Framework Version 4 is installed"}

But as MarkXIII mentioned, you can omit the "-eq $true".

Have you tried the code in my first comment? It's a solution without enumerating the current .net framework versions, and still gives all that iare installed.
