LabTech Plugin: Browser Versions
Posted on March 21, 2016
Stemming from a request to make it simpler to view the version of Internet Explorer on computers, this plugin was born. And then it quickly exploded into a bit more. It will retrieve information for IE, Chrome, and Firefox and allow you to visualize the breakdown of clients on whatever versions they have so that you can take appropriate action. This plugin is a remote plugin and will retrieve updated information every time you update the software information. While viewing the list of computers and versions, you can also easily filter by client, location, computer name and version software, including wildcards (%). This means that you can hunt down those last few IE 6 machines in a matter of seconds. What a fun afternoon! 🙂 Oh, and the final touch (so far) is that you can export the results to Excel files for later review and record keeping.
You can install from the Plugin Installer, which will restart the database agent and send updated plugin information to all machines. Afterward, simply resend software on any target machine and the information will be fetched. If you want to make it quick and easy(-er), scroll down to Groups\All Agents in the Navigation Tree and do a software inventory there.
