Hello,

Is there any software or script that helps to know what patches are missing in an Oracle database? I'm not talking about what patches are already installed.
Or the only way is reading about all patches releases up today.

O/S: Windows Server 2003
Oracle 10g / 11g

Thanks

Oracle releases quarterly patches that are cumulative.  If you apply the latest of these quarterly patches, you don't need to worry about missing patches.

The 3rd party tools are for Linux, not Windows.

That's odd.  I rechecked my source and quickly found download links at Tenable for all Windows platforms, 32 or 64 bit, as well as Mac and mobile options.  See at http://www.tenable.com/products/nessus/select-your-operating-system:

Windows XP, 2003, Vista, 2008 & 7 (32 bits):
Nessus-5.0.1-i386.msi (11696 KB)

Windows XP, 2003, Vista, 2008 & 7 (64 bits):
Nessus-5.0.1-x86_64.msi (13027 KB)

Therefore, the answer to your question is "yes".  Hope this helps!
