IE version details required RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is there any way to pull the IE version details of remote servers ? 

    The reason is, I want to know what version of IE is installed in each machine.

  • Do you have them networked?
    Do you use WSUS for updating them? (WSUS can tell you which IE updates are needed)
    Do you use System Center Configuration Manager, or some other type of management solution?
    Do you have any inventory management solution deployed?
    You could use MSFT MAP or WAIK or WADK.
    You could use AD startup scripts to inventory>
    You could use AD GP-Preferences to deploy a scheduled task, which runs a script.
    You could use remote/script WMI to gather the iexplore.exe file version details.
    You could use Powershell remoting to do the same, or you could just connect to the servers c$ and examine the file version.
    You could RDP/TS and logon and check.
    You could walk to the console of each server and logon ;)

    You could also infer it from the file version of common modules using WMIC.  Another poster had that requirement a few months ago.
