the PADT is a very create and impressive tool, i would like to introduce it in our environment but i have a question.

Is it possible, for sccm use, that padt set a registrykey for the application on
if the installation is ready and all done the padt set an installed Key with the Installationname, Version and date of installed product and them same for uninstallation.

i would like to use this as detectionrule in sccm ;).

I hope that is good explained!

with best regards

Hi André,

Sure, you can do that:

Set-RegistryKey -Key "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\MYNAME\Installed\$installName" -Name "Version" -Value $appVersion
Set-RegistryKey -Key "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\MYNAME\Installed\$installName" -Name "Install Date" -Value $currentDate

It's not something we would include by default in the toolkit, so you'd have to add those lines in to your own deployment scripts.
