Hi  ,

I want to write a powershell script to know the MS Office Version and Service Pack Info on the desktop machine . We have about 4000 machines on our network.

The current script gives me only the version number :


foreach ($computer in (Get-Content ipaddress.txt)) {
  foreach ($computer ) {
  $version = 0
  $reg = [Microsoft.Win32.RegistryKey]::OpenRemoteBaseKey('LocalMachine', $computer)

  $reg.OpenSubKey('software\Microsoft\Office').GetSubKeyNames() |% {
    if ($_ -match '(\d+)\.') {
      if ([int]$matches[1] -gt $version) {
        $version = $matches[1]
      }
    }    
  }
  if ($version) {
      "$computer : found $version"
    }
    else {
      "Could not find version for $computer"
  }
}


Any ideas ?

service pack information is in the version number... you have to detect which version means what.... see below for details of sp1 changes to version

Yep you are right but the issue i am having with the script above is i just get version numbers as 12,14,13 etc .

And that does not help me in finding the service pack info.

I am just doing a match using the registry and check the version ... i am not able to find the service pack info

Thanks

Apologies, forgot to add the computername to the output. Replace the Write-Output line with

"$computer - $officever $officesp"

Thank you for the script but this again helps me in retrieving the version but when i go through the loop where it checks for service pack i get an error

Get-ItemProperty : Cannot find path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Common\ProductVersion' because it does not ex
ist.
+  $sp = (Get-ItemProperty <<<<  HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Common\ProductVersion).LastProduct
    + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (HKLM:\SOFTWARE\...\ProductVersion:String) [Get-ItemProperty], ItemNotFo
   undException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : PathNotFound,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.GetItemPropertyCommand

So i did open the registry and i did try to find the "Productversion" under /software/microsoft/common/

There was no file and hence it was not able to compare the string so everytime i get this error and output is returned as "Office 200x No Service Pack found "

Once Again Thank you for your help !!!
