|Yes two pc's (Vista & XPH).|
Still hoping for reply from someone who knows how users determine what an OS' is running w/respect to servers, windows 2003, windows NT, etc.
Just guessing that pc's likely default are running windows NT and windows 2003 at same time, but its discourgaing to find this site's readers seem to be ignoring a valid question.
I don't think I need to defend why I'm asking about it because all too often, unnecessary updates are being installed simply due to the writer is too lazy to use an activex routine to determine if the updates actually apply to a given setup.
Additionally, little to no attention is afforded the user's updates when new software is installed, which may thereafter make necessary the application of previously un-needed updates.
To expect users to blindly install patch upon patch (by trusting MS's update activex scans), clearly result in un-needed patches, clutter and even undesirable issues.
So the attitude of 'if it ain't broke', while colorful, doesn't apply where an OS can be vulnerable to becoming broken for lack of appropriately installed updates, plus the exclusion of ones that arent' (frequently causing serious OS issues that can only be resolved by formatting the machines).
So in that updates are usually accompanied by provisos identifying particular OS's (in less than interpretable terms), surely users either need to define those terms, or go without updating because the updates can't readily be determined as applicable for a given OS's setup.
So we're left to asking for info about identifying if the provisos apply (because MS, etc., simply is too lazy or untrained so as to adequately present updates).
