How to find Quick Assist version in Inventory

Recently Microsoft changed the way Quick Assist in Windows 10 updated. It now updates via the Microsoft Store. However, at m place of work the store is blocked. We already have a appx package to manually update the devices but I'd like to be able to run a report to find all the devices that are running the old Quick Assist and the new Quick Assist.

Quick Assist doesn't appear in the standard applications list. Someone mentioned in the PDQ live video when I asked the question that is called SmartAssist but I also can't find this listed anywhere either.

Only thought I had would be to create a file scanner to look at the specific quickassist.exe file for Quick Assist and try extract the version from that ?!?

Anyone think of a better solution ??

  • You can create a PowerShell Scanner to look for the old app:

    Get-WindowsCapability -Online | Where-Object Name -like '*QuickAssist*' | Select-Object Name, State
