Identify IE Version Installs using SCCM, SQL, Chewing Gum and Coffee

You could hunt down the Add or Remove Programs list, or tunnel your way through v_GS_INSTALLED_SOFTWARE_CATEGORIZED, or walk around with a clipboard and a baseball bat, or you could do it the easy way:  a SQL query against v_GS_SoftwareFile.  Be sure to change the database name tag to whatever your site code is.

[begin code]

USE your_site_database_name


GO


SELECT DISTINCT 
  a.netbios_name0 COMPUTER_NAME, 
  CASE 
    WHEN PATINDEX('%.%',b.fileversion) = 3 THEN 
      SUBSTRING(b.fileversion,1,2) 
    WHEN PATINDEX('%.%',b.fileversion) = 2 THEN 
      SUBSTRING(b.fileversion,1,1) 
    ELSE SUBSTRING(b.fileversion,1,1) 
  END AS IEX 
FROM 
  dbo.v_R_System a LEFT OUTER JOIN 
  dbo.v_GS_SoftwareFile b ON a.ResourceID=b.ResourceID 
WHERE 
  filename LIKE 'iexplore.exe' AND Active0=1
  AND 
  LTRIM(fileversion) <> ''
ORDER BY COMPUTER_NAME

[end code]

Namaste!
