Hi, I am hoping someone can help. I am currently writing a batch file that checks for a version of software in the registry then if the right version checks the server entry in the registry. I've managed to get the version of software part working thanks to this topic http://www.msfn.org/...on-in-registry/ and Wise Owl's advice in it but have become stuck.
This is my script so far

Set "key=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{1FDB8EC6-BAF1-42F9-8E09-4D9AB369F1B5}"

Reg query %key% /v DisplayVersion|Find "">Nul&&(

Goto ServerCheck)

"framepkg.exe" /Install=Agent /Silent


Set "key=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Network Associates\ePolicy Orchestrator\Agent"

Goto Stop)

"framepkg.exe" /Install=Agent /Silent



The output from Set "key=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Network Associates\ePolicy Orchestrator\Agent" is below. The part I'm looking to check is the ePOServerList    REG_SZ and if CMCSU-EPO-01.cict.local is in the entry and if so go to Stop.

    EnableVDIMode    REG_SZ    0
    Installed Path    REG_SZ    C:\Program Files\McAfee\Common Framework
    binsphash    REG_SZ    B7BB45E1B73318C7F725E0A385C1DCC9D215FFE4D9CD3FDBB502DFE3CDD12EDC

Welcome Vespian,

Here is something that may help. It is just the part that you requested help with.

@echo off
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion

rem Ensure regData is undefined now so it can be tested later if it has been defined.
set "regData="

rem Token 2 is %%A, which is expected to be REG_SZ. Used only to get to token *, which is %%B, which is all of the data value.
for /f "tokens=2*" %%A in (
 'reg query "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Network Associates\ePolicy Orchestrator\Agent" /v ePOServerList'
) do set "regData=%%~B"

rem If regData is not defined, then seems no good continuing?
if not defined regData goto :stop

rem Show the value of regData. Use delayed expansion as you can expect pipe characters in the string.
echo regData=!regData!

rem If substitution fails, then equality is true.
if "!regData:CMCSU-EPO-01.cict.local=!" == "!regData!" goto :stop

rem You only want to install framepkg.exe once. Need a flag variable to decide this i.e. if not %installed% ...
"framepkg.exe" /Install=Agent /Silent



goto :eof

As mentioned in a comment, you only want to install framepkg.exe once so create a variable to use as a flag. Once the script installs framepkg.exe, then set the flag variable to a value i.e. 1. The you can test the variable later for value of 1 and not install if true. Use an initial value i.e. 0.

I have a couple of observations with your 'uninstall entry' check.


There is no need to check the DisplayVersion, merely the existence of the key; because {1FDB8EC6-BAF1-42F9-8E09-4D9AB369F1B5} is pertinent only to the DisplayVersion (i.e. McAfee Agent 4.8 Patch 1).


However are you sure you're only wanting to check for that specific version?


what about McAfee Agent 4.8:

  • key {11FEE8E5-D9BD-4AC1-8074-5169069DF812}; DisplayVersion

and McAfee Agent 4.8 Patch 2?

  • key {EBF3D65F-011E-44D2-8F4F-C74B52682EDD}; DisplayVersion

Also don't forget that persons using a 64bit OS will have that uninstall key in a different location
