    I have the following code, but I need to extract the "return code" string as well as whatever numerical value is there, either a "0", or a 1", etc.

    I have no idea how to do this.

    Here is what I have so far and it works great, but I just want to extract "return code 0", or "return code 1" from the string above.

    $SCCMClntReturnCode = @(
    Get-Content -Path "C:\Windows\ccmsetup\Logs\ccmsetup.log" |
    Select-Object -Last 1

    Here is the actual string that I would like to extract from:

    ![LOG[CcmSetup is exiting with return code 0]LOG]!>

    Thank you all for your help.

    Example of use:

    Get-SCCMReturnCode "C:\Windows\ccmsetup\Logs\ccmsetup.log"
    Get-SCCMReturnCode -LogPath "C:\Windows\ccmsetup\Logs\ccmsetup.log"

    Here is this code:

    function Get-SCCMReturnCode {
            [parameter(Mandatory=$true, Position=0)][string]$LogPath
        $string = "![LOG[CcmSetup is exiting with return code "
        $StringFound = Select-String -Path $LogPath -SimpleMatch $string
        if ($StringFound)
                $ReturnCode = (($StringFound.ToString() -split "CcmSetup is exiting with ") | ? { $_ -like "*return code*" }).Split(']')[0]
                $ReturnCode = "Could not extract return code accurately from $($Stringfound.ToString())"
            $ReturnCode = "Not Found"
        Write-Output $ReturnCode

    Hope this helps.
