Identify windows 7 computers with Media Center Enabled.

07/02/2013 1712 views

I have tried this with two different software custom inventory rules:

1.  RegistryValueGreaterThan(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center, Ident, 6.0)

then i tried

2. RegistryValueEquals(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center\Media Center)

I have already created the script to remove Media center with “%windir%\system32\\cmd.exe with params Dism /online /Disable-Feature /FeatureName:MediaCenter /quiet. and that worked as expected.  I just want to be able to create a label to go out and find all installs of media center so i can use this script to remove Media Center.

Since your command only disables Media Center and does not uninstall it, I'd suggest your script add a dummy registry key or text file once it disables Media Center.

You could then use a custom inventory rule to look for that registry key or file.  This would cause your script to run on machines that do not have that criteria once you create a label for it.

Perhaps you could create a string value here:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center\

Something like "MediaCenterDisabled".
