Hello,

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. )

Greetings, Karel

Hi Zak,

 

Is there anything new regarding the driver version scan in TNI 2.2.0?

 

Greetings, Karel

Hi Karel,

Unfortunately not. All new features are mentioned in the version history and in our blog.

Hi,

 

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

Old post, but we think that this is missing to. This information can be requested from the WMI interface, so it shouldn't be that hard to implement.

 

Get-WmiObject Win32_PnPSignedDriver| select devicename, driverversion

Hello, Ron.

 

Thanks for your feedback.

 

We've passed this information to the development team. This task is still on our to-do list.
