How to check DAT version?

I'm dealing with Command Prompt under Win7 and found this instruction replied in hexadecimal:

C:\Users\MrCMD>reg query "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\McAfee\AVEngine" /v "AVDatVersion"

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\McAfee\AVEngine
    AVDatVersion    REG_DWORD    0x1b18

┌─────────────────────────────────────┐
│ Executed Wed 12/26/2012 14:38:51.57 │ As [MrCMD]
└─────────────────────────────────────┘
C:\Users\MrCMD>reg query "\\MachineNumber0001\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\McAfee\AVEngine" /v "AVDatVersion"

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\McAfee\AVEngine
    AVDatVersion    REG_DWORD    0x1b18

┌─────────────────────────────────────┐
│ Executed Wed 12/26/2012 14:39:53.95 │ As [MrCMD]
└─────────────────────────────────────┘
C:\Users\MrCMD>reg query "\\MachineNumber0111\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\McAfee\AVEngine" /v "AVDatVersion"

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\McAfee\AVEngine
    AVDatVersion    REG_DWORD    0x1b18

┌─────────────────────────────────────┐
│ Executed Wed 12/26/2012 14:40:12.11 │ As [MrCMD]
└─────────────────────────────────────┘

I hope that helps..

    Sorry can you enlarge on what you are wanting

    Mrcmd what is that I assume a program that looks at running command prompts on remote Pcs? I do not use it so cannot answer better will ask the other mods? ( Ok see it is your user name)

     

    None of your registry items are in my 12.1 version so is yours 11.6? 12.1 does not use dats perse more engine  versions. The dat number can still be found in the folder miguelgrado gave though but you cannot manually update dats as you could in 11.6.

    I'm sorry I have no idea what that's about either and am not familiar with MrCMD.   Best contact Technical Support perhaps?

     

    Correction:  I see that MrCMD is obviously your PC user name.

    @Rhak Kahr,

     

    Yes, I see that information in the registry for Security Center version 11.6

     

    So what exactly is your problem, and what question are you trying to ask?

    Well the processes for the home products, which we are talking about here, are totally different from the Enterprise product. so am still wondering what it is you are talking about..

     

    If you wish to discuss VirusScan Enterprise or the Corporate setup at all please start a new thread here:  https://community.mcafee.com/community/business/system/vse

     

    There is no such process for the home products, sorry.
