How to obtain a list of “BizTalk Software Inventory” installed with PowerShell

Posted: May 14, 2012  |  Categories: Administration BizTalk PowerShell

Just play around with PowerShell and some BizTalk administrative and maintenance tasks…

It’s always good to know what software is installed in our environment. Sometimes we need to know what version of BizTalk is installed or what version of the Adapter Pack, x86 or x64?

And preferably be able to get this list in an easy and automated way.

This is my first version of this script and I will present how we can accomplish this using PowerShell:

$strComputer = "."
$arrVersions = "3.0.4902.0", "3.0.6070.0", "3.0.7405.0", "3.5.1602.0", "3.6.1404.0", "3.8.368.0", "3.9.469.0"
$location = get-location

$colItems = get-wmiobject -class "Win32_Product" -namespace "root\CIMV2" -computername $strComputer

foreach ($objItem in $colItems) {
   $Caption = $objItem.Caption

   if (($Caption -like "*BizTalk*") -and (($Caption -notlike "*BizTalk Server Setup*")))
   {
      write-host "Caption: " $objItem.Caption
      write-host "Description: " $objItem.Description
      write-host "Installation Date: " $objItem.InstallDate
      write-host "Installation Location: " $objItem.InstallLocation
      write-host "Name: " $objItem.Name
      write-host "Version: " $objItem.Version
      if( ($arrVersions -contains $objItem.Version) -like "True")
      {
         $bizTalkRegistryPath = "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\BizTalk Server"
         Set-Location $bizTalkRegistryPath
         $key = Get-ChildItem
         write-host "Product Edition: " $key.GetValue("ProductEdition")
         Set-Location $location
      }
      write-host "Vendor: " $objItem.Vendor
      write-host
   }
}
