The app to match works, but the platform section does not seem to be working

$appToMatch = '*Mimecast*'

function Get-InstalledApps
{
if ([IntPtr]::Size -eq 4) {
$regpath = 'HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\*'
}
else {
$regpath = @(
'HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\*'
'HKLM:\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\*'
)
}
Get-ItemProperty $regpath | .{process{if($_.DisplayName -and $_.UninstallString) { $_ } }} | Select DisplayName, Publisher, InstallDate, DisplayVersion, UninstallString |Sort DisplayName
}

$result = Get-InstalledApps | where {$_.DisplayName -like $appToMatch}
If ($result -eq $null) {
Write-Host "'$appToMatch' NOT installed.";

#Check If x64 or x86
$platform = get-itemproperty HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\ClickToRun\Configuration -name Platform


If($platform -eq "x86"){

#Office 2016 32-BIT STUFF
#Remove older version
$parameters = "/qn /x {948DCDCD-32BC-44A4-B970-B6E96D5E2CDC}"
$uninstallStatement = [System.Diagnostics.Process]::Start( "msiexec", $parameters )
$uninstallStatement.WaitForExit()

    }
    else {
        $regpath = @(
            'HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\*'
            'HKLM:\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\*'
        )
    }
    Get-ItemProperty $regpath | .{process{if($_.DisplayName -and $_.UninstallString) { $_ } }} | Select DisplayName, Publisher, InstallDate, DisplayVersion, UninstallString |Sort DisplayName
}

$result = Get-InstalledApps | where {$_.DisplayName -like $appToMatch -and $_.DisplayVersion -eq $DisplayVersion }
If ($result -eq $null){
		Write-Host "'$appToMatch' NOT installed run installation.";

found an error this line
$platform = get-itemproperty HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\ClickToRun\Configuration -name Platform
should be
$platform = (Get-ItemProperty HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\ClickToRun\Configuration -name Platform).Platform
