WMI: Driver Versions for Windows

Recommended Posts


I would like to suggest an enhancement in the hardware section.

I think, that it would be useful to display the driver versions for the devices in the hardware devices view. There are WMI classes in the context root\cimv2 for this like Win32_PnPDevice (list of devices) and Win32_PnPSignedDriver (list of details with driver versions).

From my point of view this information is important for keeping the manufacturer drivers up-to-date. A group report with the complete hardware would be nice as well.

I hope, you can implement this in TNI.

(Keep up the great work. For us it TNI2 is the best work tool, we have seen in the last seven years. )

I would like to emphasize, that it would be important to scan drivers and driver versions on a PC.

For a system administrator it is very important to identify installed driver versions on a PC that have bugs or security issues.

It would be a great feature, if the scanning agent could get this information as well.

Here is some further reading to the issue:

Hi Zak,

I have tested a bit the new Version 3.0 of TNI.

The Driver Version feature is still missing in the Devices Section. (There is only a rudimentary implementation for the display drivers.)

I would like to point out, that this is really a very important and a very useful feature.

(Some vendors have their own Driver-management solutions. Like Lenovo System Update or HP SoftPaq Manager. Some Vendors do not have a driver management at all.)

In my humble opinion many people would be thankful for an implementation of this.

Greetings, Karel
