I've tried, but to no avail. Wondering if any of you gurus can make it happen. Thanks!

Here's some pointers on how to do it on your own:

Look in the helpfile at the following functions.

RegRead and MsgBox

That appears to be the only funtions you need...

Also, all variables in au3 start with $

Write au3 code right at the console :D_FileWriteToLineWrite to a specific line in a file.My UDF Libraries: MySQL UDF Library version 1.6 MySQL Database UDF's for AutoItI have stopped updating the MySQL thread above, all future updates will be on my SVN.

I've got that much, I actually have it converted, so I thought... Here's the code. It errors, and I'm not sure what I did wrong.

Global Const $wbemFlagReturnImmediately = 0x10
Global Const $wbemFlagForwardOnly = 0x20
$sComputer = "."  ;Use "." for local computer
$iOfficeVer = GetOfficeVer($sComputer)

If $iOfficeVer = -1 Then
  MsgBox(16, "", "Version of Office installed is unknown, could not connect to the remote computer.")
Elseif iOfficeVer = 0 Then
  MsgBox(16, "", "Not Installed")
Else
  MsgBox(16, "", "Microsoft Office " & $iOfficeVer)
EndIf

Func GetOfficeVer($sNode)
 ; On Error Resume Next
  Const $HKLM = "&H80000002"; HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

  $objRegistry = ObjGet("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & $sNode & "\root\default:StdRegProv")
  If @Error <> 0 Then
    $GetOfficeVer = -1
    Return
  EndIf

  $sValue = ""
  $sValueName = "Path"
  $sRegPre = "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\"
  $sRegPost = "\Common\InstallRoot"

  If $objRegistry.GetStringValue($HKLM, $sRegPre & "11.0" & $sRegPost, $sValueName, $sValue) = 0 Then
    $GetOfficeVer = 2003
  Elseif $objRegistry.GetStringValue($HKLM, $sRegPre & "10.0" & $sRegPost, $sValueName, $sValue) = 0 Then
    $GetOfficeVer = 2002
  Elseif $objRegistry.GetStringValue($HKLM, $sRegPre & "9.0" & $sRegPost, $sValueName, $sValue) = 0 Then
    $GetOfficeVer = 2000
  Elseif $objRegistry.GetStringValue($HKLM, $sRegPre & "8.0" & $sRegPost, $sValueName, $sValue) = 0 Then
    $GetOfficeVer = 97
  Else
    $GetOfficeVer = 0
  EndIf
EndFunc

You didnt do what cdkid said.

You are using $objRegistry.GetStringValue instead of RegRead.


AutoIt Scripts:Aimbot: Proof of Concept - PixelSearching Aimbot with several search/autoshoot/lock-on techniques.Sliding Toolbar - Add a nice Sliding Toolbar to your next script. Click the link to see an animation of it in action!FontInfo UDF - Get list of system fonts, or search to see if a particular font is installed.Get Extended Property UDF - Retrieve a files extended properties (e.g., video/image dimensions, file version, bitrate of song/video, etc)

cdkid was completely correct in that, sure, WMI scripting is extremely useful for some things, but in this case, AutoIt has a built in function, RegRead() which accomplishes the same task:

If RegRead("HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Common\InstallRoot", "Path") <> "" Then 
    MsgBox(0,"Office Version", "Microsoft Office 2003")
ElseIf RegRead("HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Common\InstallRoot", "Path") <> "" Then 
    MsgBox(0,"Office Version", "Microsoft Office 2002")
ElseIf RegRead("HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Common\InstallRoot", "Path") <> "" Then 
    MsgBox(0,"Office Version", "Microsoft Office 2000")
ElseIf RegRead("HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Office\8.0\Common\InstallRoot", "Path") <> "" Then 
    MsgBox(0,"Office Version", "Microsoft Office 97")
Else
    MsgBox(0,"Office Version", "Office Version could not be determined.")
EndIf

    MsgBox(0,"Office Version", "Microsoft Office 97")
Else
    MsgBox(0,"Office Version", "Office Version could not be determined.")
EndIf
I thought RegRead would only do local, not remote computers... Does it work well remotely?

Edit: Right, thanks all!
