If I wanted to setup a group policy that installed Java, this would be no problem. But is it possible for the group policy to only apply to systems that have Mozilla Firefox installed?
I don't know much about WMI, but I imagine if it can be done, it would be with a WMI filter?
Is this possible?

Answering your question: yes it is possible with WMI filter.

from a nice blog on technet with examples:

example WMI:

Select * from Win32Reg_AddRemovePrograms where displayname = "nvidia drivers" AND version = "1.10"

  • Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – Mark Henderson Jan 13 '14 at 2:25
  • I was simply asking if this was possible, and he answered it. Then he provided a link for reference. I'm not sure what you mean – Ingram Jan 13 '14 at 2:45
  • This WMI query seems to require that the WMI Windows Installer Provider is installed on the processing computer or you get error 0x80041010. clintboessen.blogspot.co.uk/2009/11/… – mythofechelon Oct 15 '15 at 13:55
