Create a Custom Detection Script for the Microsoft Office Access Database Engine 2007 (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 Microsoft Office Access Database Engine 2007 using PowerShell.

How to Create a Custom Detection Script for the Microsoft Office Access Database Engine 2007

Microsoft Office Access Database Engine 2007 (Registry Detection Method)

## Check for Microsoft Office Access Database Engine 2007 (Registry Detection Method)
$AccessDB = Get-ChildItem -Path "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall","HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall" | Get-ItemProperty | Where-Object {$_.DisplayName -match 'Microsoft Office Access Database Engine 2007' } | Select-Object -Property DisplayName, DisplayVersion, UninstallString
$AccessDB.DisplayVersion
$GUID = $AccessDB.UninstallString -replace 'MsiExec.exe /I', '' -replace 'MsiExec.exe /X', ''

## Create Text File with Microsoft Office Access Database Engine 2007 Registry Detection Method
$FilePath = "C:\Windows\Temp\MS_Access_Database_Engine_2007_Detection_Method.txt"
New-Item -Path "$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\$($GUID)' -Name DisplayVersion -ea SilentlyContinue) -ge '$($AccessDB.DisplayVersion)') {"
Add-Content -Path "$FilePath" -Value "Write-Host `"Installed`""
Add-Content -Path "$FilePath" -Value "}"
Invoke-Item $FilePath
  • Click Run Script (F5)
  • A text file will open with the Microsoft Office Access Database Engine 2007 Detection Method script required to detect the current version of the Microsoft Office Access Database Engine 2007 that is installed on the device you are running the script from.

Example:

If([Version](Get-ItemPropertyValue -Path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{90120000-00D1-0409-0000-0000000FF1CE}','HKLM:\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{90120000-00D1-0409-0000-0000000FF1CE}' -Name DisplayVersion -ea SilentlyContinue) -ge '12.0.4518.1031') {
Write-Host "Installed"
}
