Is it possible to use a wildcard (or regex) for a Windows package name?


package { 'foo':
  ensure   => installed,
  name     => "Foo Bar ${version} *",
  provider => 'windows'
edit retag flag offensive close merge delete

I don't believe so. Did you try it and it failed? Take a look here

Due to the name match to the registry entry, I'm going to say it's probably not a valid way to express the name.

As an aside, there are other package managers for windows that have puppet providers.
