Tests if the Software Folder object "Microsoft" exists in the container "Global Software Library\Application Library":

Test-EmdbSoftwareFolder "emdb:\rootDSE\Global Software Library\Application Library\Microsoft"

The following example tests, if a Software Folder object with a name starting with "Acrobat" exists in the "Global Software Library\Application Library\Adobe" container:

Test-EmdbSoftwareFolder "emdb:\rootDSE\Global Software Library\Application Library\Adobe\Acrobat*"

Cd "emdb:\rootDSE\Global Software Library\Packaging Library"

Test-EmdbSoftwareFolder "Albert Tross" -Recurse
