  • Is there a question or are you just sharing some code?

  • Hi Rippal,

    I think you probably forgot to post your question

    When I check your script, I found a problem.

      $obj = New-Object PSObject
            $obj | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "DisplayName" -Value $($thisSubKey.getvalue("PackageName"))
            $array += $obj

    Your variable $obj just run the command "new-object PSObject", so $array can't get the output you want.

      $obj = New-Object PSObject
            $test=$obj | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "DisplayName" -Value $($thisSubKey.getvalue("PackageName"))
            $array += $test

    You can change it by the example.

    Best Regards,


    Just do it.

  • The code posted in totally incorrect and unusable for many reasons.  The key I not in the correct format and there is no such key for the installer.

    There are a number of scripts in the Gallery that show how to get the installed software remotely.

  • This is all you need to get the name of the package'  Not there is no value named "DisplayName"

    $computer = 'Alpha'
    $keyPath = 'SOFTWARE\Classes\Installer\Patches\241630F0445788D4A862850B488648A9\SourceList'
    $reg = [microsoft.win32.registrykey]::OpenRemoteBaseKey('LocalMachine',$computer)

  • I asked if there was a question because there is no way to know what is needed.  It appears that multiple scripts have been merged and modified and there is no way to tell what is needed.  The key is not an uninstaller key.

    Answering this with no question is pointless.
