CMS 7.1 SP2 - Custom Inventory for Internet Explorer

I noticed that IE was no longer inventoried by default, so I created the custom inventory attached. You will need to modify the GUIDs to reflect your environment (i.e. create a custom data class, and match the GUID with that part in the VBS script). Hope this saves someone a minute.

Works great!  I used it in conjunction with the following post.

This is amazing!  Thank you for putting this together.  When my co-worker mentioned the IE Version isn't inventoried by the SMP anymore, I thought, "No way."  But it's not...so this script is PERFECT.  Plus it's an easy way to see how to modify it to track other registry entries.  A++!

To deal with IE 10 and 11 reporting as "9.10" and "9.11"

I replaced 

strValueName1 = "Version"

with

strValueName1 = "svcUpdateVersion"

 

 

This may fail with machines with versions prior to 9 as I'm not sure when the "svcUpdateVersion" began to be used.  A more extended scripting session could check for the existance of "svcUpdateVersion" and if it isn't present, use "Version".

here is some powershell that will take the value of svcVersion if its available and version if svcVersion is not there:

$regkey = "HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer"

$Name = "svcVersion"

$IEVersion = (Get-ItemProperty $regkey).$name

if (-not $IEVersion)

{

$Name= "Version"

$IEVersion = (Get-ItemProperty $regkey).$name

}
