    Hello guys,

    Hope you can direct me to a good place, cause i am pretty lost.

    I have Configuration manager current branch.
    I created a package and a program with powershell and i need to choose specific platforms in the program.

    New-CMPackage -Name 7zip_v4.65 -Version 4.65 -Path "\\server1\packages\7zip_v.65"
    New-CMProgram -CommandLine "7zip.exe /s" -PackageName "7zip_v4.65" -StandardProgramName "7zip_install"
    

    For instance: All windows 7 x64 and All windows 7 x86

    One of the New-CMProgram parameters is:
    [-AddSupportedOperatingSystemPlatform ] IResultObject
    and i don't know what IResultObject means 🙁

    i have tried to do the following in order to understands how powershell saves this kind of information:

    $pkg = Get-CMProgram -PackageName "7zip_v4.75" -ProgramName "7zip_install"
    

    And this is what is got:

    PS AMR:\> $pkg.SupportedOperatingSystems
    SmsProviderObjectPath : SMS_OS_Details
    MaxVersion            : 6.10.9999.9999
    MinVersion            : 6.10.0000.0
    Name                  : Win NT
    Platform              : x64
    
    SmsProviderObjectPath : SMS_OS_Details
    MaxVersion            : 6.10.9999.9999
    MinVersion            : 6.10.0000.0
    Name                  : Win NT
    Platform              : I386
    

    What can i do with this info?

    Thank you so much for helping.

    The IResultObject is looking for an object of a specific class. In this case, SMS_SupportedPlatform, which is different from the SMS_OS_Details that returns with your $pkg.SupportedOperatingSystems.

    To find the SMS_SupportedPlatform, use Get-CMSupportedPlatform. This will list all available platforms, and you will need to find the one you need and either use it like a parameter -AddSupportedOperatingSystemPlatform (Get-CMSupportedPlatform -Name "xxxxx") or store it in variable, then use that variable inline.
