I need to perform a basic software audit on over 300 pc's and don't want to burden the users with software installed or convoluted procedures.
I need to know the MS Windows version (and architecture if possible), the MS Office version and if possible, the highest DotNetFramework version installed.
I was thinking a script might be able to do this... but I'd like the output of the query emailed to me or displayed in a text file that the user can copy/paste into an email to send to me.
A few google searches suggest I could use for example:
reg query "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion" /v "ProductName"
reg query "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Word.Application\CurVer"
but I don't know how to output the results into a usable format.
Is there any suggestions for scripts or small programs that could do what I need?
There is this one executable (attached as a zip that you will need to decompress and change the extension of the file inside back to an exe) that is perfect, but I can't use it because it's for a proprietary software install and contains hyperlinks, logos and company names that I don't want plastered all over the place.
