1) Extend the Hardware inventory with an inventory filter and add the WMI Class "win32_quickfixengineering"
2) MS Powershell may be also used in combination with the custom inventory
The result of "Get-HotFix" could be imported to the custom inventory (OR Step: File Analysis via Reg Ex) and this could be used at the compliance module (same as for HW inventory)
That would be two options to get the date. However as long as the date information is only available as string and not as date you won't be able to use an relative date at the compliance module but you could create a dynamic device group with a free query which converts the string to an date and use this date a s an relative value.
I guess I would first try the powershell method if I couldn't use the registry values .
Is there a specific reason why you won't use the registry?
Thanks for the suggestion.
I would prefere a build-in methode to query the values, if there is one. I hadn't a specific reason against the registry value. I just thought I overlook the right option, therefore I asked. In fact, I did it with the registry value ;-)
Just uploaded it in the custom inventory, quick and simple.
