Hi,

Would like assistance in the creation of 2 batch files:

1. A batch to check that all PC's on the network are covered by MS Security Patches & which patches or a way for me to add the specific MS Patch numbers and workstation names and output if the workstations are patched.

2. A batch to check all PC's for specific software titles. ie. to conduct a license check.

Thanks in advance

For the security patches you should use the MBSA (Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer)
running "hfnetchk –z –v" will show you what is missing.

for the software titles you need a way to recognise a certain software title. For example if a subdirectory in c:\program files exists, you can asume that that particular software is installed. But that is not fool-proof.
