Create a Custom Detection Script for GoTo Opener (PowerShell)


Microsoft Endpoint Manager Configuration Manager (MEMCM / SCCM) and Microsoft Intune use Detection Rules to determine the presence of Applications & Win32 Apps. The detection rules ensure that application installations only begin to run if the application is not already installed on the device. This article will serve as an informative guide and give you a clear understanding of how to create an updated custom detection script for each new version of GoTo Opener using PowerShell.

How to Create a Custom Detection Script for GoTo Opener

GoTo Opener (File Detection Method)

## Check for GoTo Opener (File Detection Method)
$GoToOpenerExe = (Get-ChildItem -Path "C:\Program Files\GoTo Opener\GoTo Opener.exe","C:\Program Files (x86)\GoTo Opener\GoTo Opener.exe" -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue)
$GoToOpenerExe.FullName
$GoToOpenerPath = $($GoToOpenerExe.FullName).Replace("C:\Program Files\","").Replace("C:\Program Files (x86)\","")
$FileVersion = (Get-Item -Path "$($GoToOpenerExe.FullName)" -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue).VersionInfo.FileVersion

## Create Text File with GoTo Opener File Detection Method
$FilePath = "C:\Windows\Temp\GoTo_Opener_Detection_Method.txt"
New-Item -Path "$FilePath" -Force
Set-Content -Path "$FilePath" -Value "If([String](Get-Item -Path `"`$Env:ProgramFiles\$GoToOpenerPath`",`"`${Env:ProgramFiles(x86)}\$GoToOpenerPath`" -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue).VersionInfo.FileVersion -ge `"$FileVersion`"){"
Add-Content -Path "$FilePath" -Value "Write-Host `"Installed`""
Add-Content -Path "$FilePath" -Value "}"
Invoke-Item $FilePath

Example:

If([String](Get-Item -Path "$Env:ProgramFiles\GoTo Opener\GoTo Opener.exe","${Env:ProgramFiles(x86)}\GoTo Opener\GoTo Opener.exe" -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue).VersionInfo.FileVersion -ge "1.0.0.551"){
Write-Host "Installed"
}

GoTo Opener (Registry Detection Method)

$GoToOpener = Get-ChildItem -Path "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall","HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall" | Get-ItemProperty | Where-Object {$_.DisplayName -match 'GoTo Opener' } | Select-Object -Property DisplayName, DisplayVersion, UninstallString
$GoToOpener.DisplayVersion
$GUID = $GoToOpener.UninstallString -replace 'MsiExec.exe /I', '' -replace 'MsiExec.exe /X', ''

## Create Text File with GoTo Opener Registry Detection Method
$FilePath = "C:\Windows\Temp\GoTo_Opener_Detection_Method.txt"
New-Item -Path "$FilePath" -Force
Set-Content -Path "$FilePath" -Value "If([Version](Get-ItemPropertyValue -Path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\$($GUID)','HKLM:\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\$($GUID)' -Name DisplayVersion -ea SilentlyContinue) -ge '$($GoToOpener.DisplayVersion)') {"
Add-Content -Path "$FilePath" -Value "Write-Host `"Installed`""
Add-Content -Path "$FilePath" -Value "}"
Invoke-Item $FilePath
  • Click Run Script (F5)
  • A text file will open with the GoTo Opener Detection Method script required to detect the current version of GoTo Opener that is installed on the device you are running the script from.

Example:

If([Version](Get-ItemPropertyValue -Path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{5910A7B5-05DA-4E82-AA20-3B39EDCCD8B7}','HKLM:\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{5910A7B5-05DA-4E82-AA20-3B39EDCCD8B7}' -Name DisplayVersion -ea SilentlyContinue) -ge '1.0.551') {
Write-Host "Installed"
}
