Create a Custom Detection Script for the Amazon Music Desktop App (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 the Amazon Music Desktop App using PowerShell.

How to Create a Custom Detection Script for the Amazon Music Desktop App

Amazon Music Desktop App (Registry Detection Method)

## Check for Amazon Music (Registry Detection Method)
$AmazonMusic = Get-ChildItem -Path "HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall" | Get-ItemProperty | Where-Object {$_.DisplayName -match 'Amazon Music' } | Select-Object -Property DisplayName, DisplayVersion, PSChildName
$AmazonMusic.DisplayVersion
$AmazonMusic.PSChildName

  • Click Run Script (F5)
  • A text file will open with the Amazon Music Desktop App Detection Method script required to detect the current version of the Amazon Music Desktop App that is installed on the device you are running the script from.
