    there is not a univoque way because it not exist a unique version of the agent.

    The Agent is made of different files (components) and some patches may modify some individual files only.

    The only thing that I can think about is to look at the version of LDISCN32.EXE that is an executables that's common to all the agent configurations.

    From DOS there is not a real direct way to have a look to the version of it (as far as I know): one way is to use FILEVER.EXE (part of the resource kit) or write a small VBS script that instantiates the FileSystemObject and retrives the version info of the file.

    Kind regards,

    I uses to change the name of the agent each time I modified its configuration, or when I updates Landesk with a patch and rebuilt all agents.


    Examples : 02 xxx Standard Windows Wks Agent V9.SP2-004.
    03 xxx Standard Windows Wks Agent (+ARP Discovery) V9.SP2-004.


    I have an agent configuration Number : 02 which identify the agent targets and its use. It never change.


    Then The agent Name : Standard Windows Wks Agent.


    Then the landesk Version and Service Pack : it could change depending of the service pack level...


    Then the release version : -004 It change each time a change is done in the configuration (not very often) or when i patches Landesk with an MCP patch or others... (More often).


    Then I can get them in queries and in inventory.


    I hopes it will help you.
