Registry Version Key

I noticed the registry version property fix is commented out in the script.  Is it no longer needed?  Is it because of the version # itself?

By the way, I used the MS supplied creation scripts (Install-SharePoint, New-SharePointFarm) on my first WFE.  I used Join-SharePointFarm on my second WFE.

I added the property on the first WFE by using -

$ver = "$($(Get-SPFarm).BuildVersion.Major).0.0.$($(Get-SPFarm).BuildVersion.Build)"
New-ItemProperty -path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\14.0' -Name Version -Value $ver

When I went to do the same thing on the second WFE, it told me it existed.

Thanks a bunch, I'll re-enable the fix and include your code for grabbing the true version number - cheers!
