How to Exclude by value in Registry Scan Profile

Can any one assist me in figuring out how make a exclusion in a registry scan profile based on the value or "Data" column in the registry? I want to exclude any Microsoft, Bluetooth, or WAN devices so that only the actual NIC and WNIC show up. Below is what I have in the patterns.

Include Pattern:


Exclude Pattern:

SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class{4d36e972-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}*\DriverDesc\Microsoft*\ SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class{4d36e972-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}*\DriverDesc\Bluetooth*\ SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class{4d36e972-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}*\DriverDesc\WAN*\

  • I'm confused.....

    PDQ Inventory comes with a NICs scan and if you want a list with all active NICs, look for the status connected in your report or "name" -> "does not contains" WAN, Bluetooth etc. But be carefull with "Microsoft", because Hyper V devices using Microsoft in the NIC name.

  • Sorry, I probably should have stated my goal with this approach. I'm trying to find out if the power management is enabled or disabled on everyone's NIC. That's way I'm trying only to get the PnPCapabilities entry for only the physical NIC.
