Installation question

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?

I am running the following command to look for the GUID

get-wmiobject Win32_Product | Format-Table IdentifyingNumber, Name, LocalPackage -AutoSize

more options

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 dont see the GUID in the key you mentioned, I checked a win 7 and 10 box and one running 68.x and the other 69.x.

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.
