Method of detecting add-ons that are installed

Posted

I am working on a project to be able to parse all extensions installed on a computer for each user profile on the computer. I have researched what I can, and haven't really found a good method of doing so. I was hoping that you may be able to assist me with a PowerShell (or the like) script that can be run which would output that type of information?

Thanks!

The file in each semi-randomly-named profile folder containing information on installed extensions is:

extensions.json

Can you use a JSON parser in your PowerShell code? I don't know whether Microsoft JScript has that or not.

I found this. Don't know if it will help. To see the program code, save the file, then add .zip to it.
