Catalog Software Version Checking
I've been asked whether it is possible to track whether installed software is older than the most current version.
I'm thinking the software catalog could be a start point.
I'm not familiar with SQL, so not sure how to go about this.
In essence I need to see:
Installed version is less than 6 months older than current version.
Any ideas and suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance

You could create a reference machine that you would keep the software on the most current versions. Create a report to compare that machine to all the others installed programs. One way to insure that newest version is in the catalog is to have a machine with it installed on to be inventoried.
