    Re: How to display Hotfixes on Win7 systems

    There is a file in your Hyena directory that has paths in it:

    hyena_hotfix_list.dat

    Open that file to see the paths it looks at.

    More than likely Microsoft is putting that data in a different location for 64 bit systems. Unfortunately we aren't sure where. If you can find the registry locations you can add them to that file.

    The only other option I can see would be to use:

    WMI->Execute Query->Hot Fixes

    The WMI engine "should" be better at retrieving this information and not depend on hard-coded registry keys. Plus, you can select multiple computers and run it.

    How to display Hotfixes on Win7 systems

    We are just starting testing with Win7. Using Hyena 8.5, the properties pages on a Windows 7 PC (x64) don't display any Hotfixes. Other systems running XP, 2003, etc. report OK. Is this a Win7 lockdown issue? Something that needs to be enabled on Win7?

    Thanks,
