Report to find Windows 10 version

09/14/2018 2796 views
New to Kace and Patch Management so be gentle!

I am wondering if there is a report or script or something that can tell me which of our PC's are running Windows 10 version 1607?  End of service date for that is April 9th, 2019 (for Enterprise) and I would like to know who needs to update.  I see in the Device OS Inventory that it shows OS version is 10.0.16299 but that does not tell me which feature release that is on.

If we do need to update some PC's, I am going to attempt to push the Feature Update through Patch Management using this article.  If anyone knows of a better or easier way than I would love to hear it.

Thanks in advance!

So I was able to figure the report out on my own.  I found that I can create a report that will show Build Version, IP, System Name and User Logged to get what I need and then reference the Build Version to the Microsoft list of Builds to Versions and go from there.

For those that would like this report here is what I did:

New Report
Title - Computer OS Version
Category - Software
Description - shows build version installed on PC

Fields to Display
    IP Address
    System Name
Operating System Info
    Build Version
    Service Pack
User Information
    User Full Name
    User Logged

Column Order
Change to your preference

All else was default.

Hope his helps others!

Now to get that Feature Update push made...

  • There is a little tweak, since your report shows the build number, and you need to know which build version is which one.

    You can create a Custom Inventory Rule (Inventory | Software | Choose Action -> New )

    With the following Rule:
    RegistryValueReturn(HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion,ReleaseID,REG_SZ)

    After the next checkin it adds under Custom Inventory Fields the following:
    CIR 15 - BUILD: 1803 [string]

    You can use this field for any label and any report, which sometimes makes it easier to do such things.
    • Nice tweak! Thank you very much!
