Label Windows 10 Versions Properly in System Properties

Can we please get a new field added to the System Information, Operating System section of an asset so we can do native searches for assets?

This needs to say Windows 10 Display Version.

Microsoft has changed how they label version of Windows 10. Instead of 1909, etc, they are now 20H2, etc. If you look at your current label that says OS release version, any asset that is up to date will say 1909. The problem is that is the last thing it will ever say because they are not updating that anymore, so it is pointless to have it in the asset.

Instead, we need to be able to see the Display Version, which can be found under the following registry key:

“HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion”).DisplayVersion

This should be a simple change on your side, to check that for the version, and then display it in the system properties. This way, we can have up to date information.

For now, I have a script that updates a custom asset field with that information, but then I have to rely on the script running something that should just be natively supported in the agent.

We need this to be able to search for outdated assets by looking at the os version field, so we can ensure assets don’t go too long without being updated.
