Issue/Introduction

Where can I find or get the version-specific MSI GUIDs or Product Codes for different Sensor Versions?

Environment

  • Carbon Black Cloud Sensor: All Versions
  • Microsoft Windows: All Supported Versions

Resolution

There are a couple of methods to get the Product Codes or MSI GUIDs for different versions of the Carbon Black Cloud Sensor.
  • Directly from the MSI: https://community.carbonblack.com/t5/Knowledge-Base/CB-Defense-How-to-Retrieve-a-Sensor-s-GUID-Using-Powershell/ta-p/83709
  • Via Windows Management Instrumentation: https://community.carbonblack.com/t5/Knowledge-Base/CB-Defense-How-to-Retrieve-a-Sensor-s-GUID-Using-Command-Prompt/ta-p/83712

Additional Information

  • The GUID or Product Code is unique per Sensor version and the bitness of the operating system (32-bit/x86 or 64-bit/x64)
  • All Sensors of a given version and bitness will have the┬ásame GUID or Product Code
    • e.g., all 3.7.0.1411 Sensors installed on x64 systems will have the same Product Code
