Installation question

Posted

I am trying push Firefox out via Microsoft Intune. I am able to push it out but Intune's always say waiting on install status. I have tried the msi and the exe installers and have the same issue. I am trying to validate the installation like I do other msi installation by looking at the GUID but the issue is none of the Firefox installers install a GUID in the registry.

I am trying to figure out how to add my own GUID via the installation. Any ideas?

The GUID is always the same HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Mozilla Firefox 69.0.1 (x64 en-US)

only the version and OS extension changes

I think Dkiger is saying your verification tool should look for the key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Mozilla Firefox 69.0.1 (x64 en-US)

and not a value under that key.

Correct, you'll want to go off the key or if you wish to get more technical the Key itself and then DisplayVersion. However the key itself is good enough to verify a proper installation.
