    Re: HOTIFIXES - INCOMPLETE REPORTS

    See the Customizing Hotfix Properties section under Advanced in the Hyena v5.7 help file. Let me know if you use this mechanism and it fixes this problem.

    I'll post it here for others:

    Microsoft lacks a well-published or standardized mechanism to track the installed hot fix information on Windows-based computers. Instead, various registry locations have been used throughout the years for recording the hotfix installation information on Windows NT and later Windows versions.

    Hyena, starting with v5.7, now uses a customizable text file that can be used to store the registry key paths that will be used by Hyena to scan for hotfix information. This information appears on the HotFix dialog on the Computer Properties dialog. The name of this file is HYENA_HOTFIX_LIST.DAT and it must be found in Hyena's installation directory. The sample file that gets installed with Hyena v5.7 currently contains these key paths:

    SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Hotfix

    SOFTWARE\Citrix\Metaframe\CurrentVersion\HOTFIX

    SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SP4\Hotfix

    SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SP5\Hotfix

    All of the registry locations are subkeys of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. This file can be modified with any text editor.

    HOTIFIXES - INCOMPLETE REPORTS

    I've noticed that Hyena doesn't always show a complete list of installed Hotfixes when looking at a computer's properties. For example, I have both 828028 (ASN.1 library) and 832483 (MDAC) installed on my system. However, only 828028 shows up in the installed list. Anyone have any idea how I can get a list of ALL hotfixes installed?

    Many thanks.
