Is it possible to programatically detect SAS is up to date?

Recommended Posts

I'm writing a program that gathers a lot of useful info from computers. I'd really like to be able to determine that SAS is up to date. I've looked in the registry and via WMI but the only way I've found so far is to check the date of processlist.bin. Is there a better or preferred way to do this?

I should add that this refers to Windows XP, not Vista.

You would have to check against the server version number as well if you want to look at dates and/or version numbers in the registry.

SUPERAntiSpyware,

Do you mean I should check the version available on your web server? If the definition of up to date is say... running a signature < 7 days old then it would seem that a file date check is ok.
