Can't retrieve KB951847 from Registry, but MBSA Security tool can

I've written a VBScript to pull the current .NET Framework information from a couple of Keys.
However, when  attempt to lookup KB951847 anywhere in the Registry it fails. Now, I can use the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer and it will report on that KB (but doesn't on the Bulletin). My question is if MBSA can, where is it finding this information? I understand that KB951847 is an accumulation of KB Hotfixes that make up .NET Framework 3.5 SP1. So I just need to know if it's a specific file where I can pull a specific version off of it, or somewhere.
i'm hoping someone has been down this road before...
Thanks Experts,
Wallace

Hi Wally, this looks like a strange issue, but someone else had the problem here, and was given some information:
http://www.winserverkb.com/Uwe/Forum.aspx/baseline-analyzer/1342/Why-does-MBSA-2-1-show-KB951847-missing-and-installed

Hopefully that helps you understand what might be going on.  It appears that some of the updates in the cumulative pack may not have been installed.

Regards,

Rob.

Excellent information Rob. This may very well be the reason why we are not seeing any references in the Registry with respect to the "Net Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 and .Net Framework 3.5
Family Update (KB951847) installation.
