Script to Install IE9 on Vista and 7

4 posts in this topic

Hello! I'm trying to create a simple cmd script to install IE9 depends on user Windows version (Vista x86 & x64 and 7 x86 & x64). I tested on Windows 7 x86 and x64 fine using "if exist" for either x86 or x64 but I'm stuck on how to tell it to distinguise between Vista (SP1 and SP2) and 7 (Build 7600 and Build 7601 SP1). Anyone out there can give me some information? Thanks.

You can get this information from WMI, specifically the Win32_OperatingSystem class, and the BuildNumber property. Not sure how to get that from a regular CMD file. I've done it with AutoIT and I've seen others use VBScript and other things too.

Found the solution:

ver | findstr /il "5.1." > nul

if %errorlevel% equ 0 goto winxp

ver | findstr /il "6.0." > nul

if %errorlevel% equ 0 goto winvista

ver | findstr /il "6.1." > nul

if %errorlevel% equ 0 goto win7

The above will check for the version number and then goto depends on the OS. If it's XP then it gives an error. I also added a line to check wether it's a 64-bit or not and install IE9 accordingly. For example:

:win7

if defined ProgramFiles(x86) goto win7x64

Unfortunately that is not a solution!

That script is looking at the version of the command interpreter not of the Operating System, granted they are usually the same but not always.

There is no upper/lower case difference with those characters therefore the /i switch is not required.

A more robust batch file method may be this (untested):

@ECHO OFF&SETLOCAL ENABLEEXTENSIONS
(SET OS_=)
FOR /F "TOKENS=*" %%# IN ('NET CONFIG WORK^|FIND /I " WINDOWS "') DO (
(ECHO=%%#|FINDSTR/I "VISTA 2008">NUL 2>&1)&&(SET OS_=VISTA)
(ECHO=%%#|FIND /I " 7 ">NUL 2>&1)&&(SET OS_=WIN7))
IF NOT DEFINED OS_ GOTO :EOF
IF %OS_% EQU VISTA GOTO VIE9
REM Place commands for Windows 7 install below here
IF DEFINED ProgramW6432 (
REM Place install command for Windows 7 x64 below here

REM Place install command for Windows 7 x64 above here
) ELSE (
REM Place install command for Windows 7 x86 below here

REM Place install command for Windows 7 x86 above here
)
GOTO :EOF
:VIE9
IF DEFINED ProgramW6432 (
REM Place install command for Vista or 2008 x64 below here

REM Place install command for Vista or 2008 x64 above here
) ELSE (
REM Place install command for Vista or 2008 x86 below here

REM Place install command for Vista or 2008 x86 above here
)
GOTO :EOF
