Hi all

I must to install microsoft patchs with an automatic script, how to detect the correct

version (with service pack) installed of Internet explorer and outlook express separately?

Is there a value in the registry?

Thanks

Just get the version of it. Here's an example for IE:

$version = FileGetVersion(@ProgramFilesDir & "\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe")
MsgBox(0, "IE Version", "Your IE version is: " & $version)

Or, some MS patches install into or create seperate folders, like %systemroot%\$NtUninstallKB835732$ which you can check for.

Someone knows the relation between Internet explorer file version (FileGetVersion () function) , outlook express and the relative service pack or standard version ?

From version 5.5 and higher?

Exsample:

IE file version 6.0.2800.1106 -> ie 6 sp1

IE file Version ????????????? -> ie 6

Where can i find this information.

Thanks

Checking the file version of iexplore.exe doesn't give you the correct version of IE as a whole. Better to use :

$IEVersion = RegRead ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Micorsoft\Intenret Explorer\", "Version"

You need this IE version if you are applying IE critical updates, don't rely on the file version of iexplore.exe
