Hi

I have an Outlook addin which needs to be deployed - an installer for x86 and x64.

I believe I should be able to utilise WMI Filters in GPO to ensure the righr version gets installed on the right machines, but I have never touched WMI before.

Some help please?!

All PC's have Office 2010, but some are 64 and some 32 bit.

SCCM etc would be ideal for this.

Don't you have a spreadsheet where all the workstation details are noted?

You will be surprised to know what people ask in here.

Anyway you can install MAP, this is free from MS (Microsoft Assessment & Planning Toolkit).

That will give you information about which machine is running what.

Hi

That tool looks very useful!

I have installed it and ran an inventory and created a report, however it doesnt seem to report on the one thing I need - bitness (it reports them all as Microsoft Home and Business 2010)

Do you know if there is a way to get this info?
