WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Change management in IT is critical. But, even with a good change management process, changes are too often not correctly tracked, if at all. The configuration of your servers and applications is a key factor in their performance, availability, and security. Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

How to locate the Internet Explorer version on a managed computer

Updated July 7th, 2016


Patch Manager does not collect the Microsoft® Internet Explorer® version installed on managed computers. To collect this information, create an inventory configuration template to pull this information from the Registry on each managed computer. 


Patch Manager


Use the following Registry keys and string values in your inventory configuration template.

32-bit computers

  • Registry Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
  • Registry Key Path: SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer
  • Registry Value (String): Version

64-bit computers

  • Registry Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
  • Registry Key Path: SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer
  • Registry Value (String): Version

Creating the inventory configuration template will not alter any existing scheduled Inventory tasks. To add this information to your scheduled Inventory tasks, replace those tasks with new tasks using the new template.
