@dungadaman you can just perform a $null check for the $targetVersion I just updated the snippet
Thank you. I'll try asap. But at the moment, even with your latest edit, Remedation status Failed on every pc. Running your script interactively works. So something is wrong when deploying through Intune remediation.

Set "Run script in 64-bit PowerShell" to YES, or it will not find the correct registry key

Oh! I feel so dumb. Didn't though about this. Thanks a lot. :)

That's OK, I had the same problem yesterday and took me 30 mins to realise :)

Good to hear I was not the only one ;-)

Hi Everyone,

thank you for the script it worked for me perfectly. Few things I need to ask if someone can help me out with it.

1- should we target the devices or users in the proactive remediation package or it won’t matter?

2- what about the schedule? Should I run it once or daily or hourly? What’s a best practice and it won’t trigger the installation again and again on the fixed devices?

It would be really great if someone can guide me with it.

Can I anyone please let me know?

@Ali121-coder In our case, we targeted the device group.

In the beginning we let it run hourly to get the clients checked and updated as soon as possible. Later we changed it so that it runs every few hours.
Even if you set it to run hourly, remediation will only run in case your clients haven’t updated to the version/s specified in the detection script.

In case the client already updated to the desired version (with PR or manually by the user), this info will be provided in the PR report (you just need to select all columns to be visible).

@TomislavPeharec thank you so much.
