Collection based on file not found

Hello all,

This is my first port here so please bare with me.

I am trying to create 2 collections. The first is if a file exists, C:\Program Files\SOLIDWORKS Corp\SOLIDWORKS\SLDWORKS.EXE & C:\Program Files\SOLIDWORKS Corp\SOLIDWORKS\SOLIDWORKS PDM\ViewServer.exe. This tells me that the machine has a full install of Solidoworks with PDM. That collection works fine.

The second collection I am having trouble with is finding machines that don't have SLDWORKS.EXE, but do have ViewServer.exe. This tells me they have only Solidworks PDM and not the full install.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

  • Try a filter like this. I don't actually use this so you might need to fine tune what column it's looking at based on your successful collection.

  • Thank you James. That pointed me in the right direction. I already built a scanner for the 2 exe's. So here is my collection.
