With the 7.5 release being so close I decided to check whether the 7.1 based Patch Automation tools I have written will work in 7.5.

And I'm glade to report here that everything (so far) is working properly. The only important thing here is that you need to take a copy of the 7.1 Altiris.PatchManagementCore.Web.dll [1].

I'll probably do more detailed testing in the coming few days but I guess there'll be a lot of (positive) noise about the 7.5 release. So I decided to bit it by a few days ;).

Finally, here's a screen shot of ZeroDayPatch version 8 running on my 7.5 server, just for the fun of it:

[1] If you cannot find the correct DLL version please send me a direct message and I will get it to you.

Seems like it's not working with 7.5 SP1 anymore.

Thanks for the heads up Mistral.

I'll update my build and test 7.5 server and will check what is going on there!

I am currently off-net, on a retreat of some kind. I'll be back real soon, and you sure will hear from me then ;-).
