How to know what patches are missing in my Oracle database?

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

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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!
