Getting the current installed version information from SAP with VBScript


This is probably a question that is buried somewhere in here but so far no luck finding it so i'm throwing it out to everyone.

I am in charge of developing all of the distribution packages for SAP and any and all add-ons our corporate site requires. I'm using radia as a push tool and vbscript and wmi to manage the uninstall, install, patching, updating, and miscellaneous functions needed on each users system.

prior to my taking this position over an older version of SAP was distributed to several users with less than stellar results. due to the massive size of the Frontend GUI i've separated it out as a base stand alone install and packaged each Add-On with only the files it needs to complete the FE install. in order to guarantee my users have the newest version of the FE GUI on their systems i am doing some rudimentary checks based on the existence or no existence of the push directory of the older sap package on the users system. which works for now but is not the most graceful thing.

What i need is to be able to check right from a running vbscript what the current version and patch level the FE GUI is running at and any other components if possible, for now the FE GUI is the most important

Thanks for the help
