hello Experts,

I am in process of creating a Script that check for operating system version and software installed version.  if the operating system build number equals 16299 and installed software version 2.8 dont do nothing if not throw a message, to update for software.
Is that possible
Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_Product | Select-Object Name, Version | Where-Object -FilterScript {$_.Name -like "*"} 

Open in new window

[environment]::OSVersion.Version

Open in new window

Your where-object is not needed. You are asking to filter against a wind card. What you are doing is saying where anything = anything.

The OS part is easy

if( [environment]::OSVersion.Version.Build -eq 16299 )
{
    # check the app version
}

Open in new window

What is the name of the app?

Thanks Micheal,
I came up with below
$WindowsVersion = [environment]::OSVersion.Version.Build

if( $WindowsVersion -match "16299" ) {
Write-Output "success"
}
else
{
Write-Output "fail"
}
if (Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_Product | Where-Object -FilterScript {$_.Name -eq "McAfee Agent"} |  Where-Object -FilterScript {$_.version -eq "10.01"} | Format-List -Property Name,Version) {
Write-Output "success"
}
else
{
Write-Output "fail"
}

Open in new window

Is there any option in powershell like GOTO. if version matches check for product both success dont do nothing, if any of that fails shutdown computer
