How to check if windows store app is installed RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are dealing with annoying store app where it will install, but doesn't create any shortcuts (via SCCM).

    The idea I cam up with is to setup a 2nd copy as a dependency in SCCM so once the install completes a script checks that the store app is there and copies the necessary shortcuts.

    I can get the application to show with the command


    My difficulty is I'm not clear / can't find information on taking that and making it into a If-Then statement so that If the specific store app exists some action will then occur.

    Any advice would be appreciated.
