    How to check DAT version?

    raka

      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..

          Well Sir.. Here the fact for your assumption..

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

          HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\McAfee\AVEngine

              TrjDatDate    REG_SZ
              PUPDatDate    REG_SZ

          ┌─────────────────────────────────────┐
          │ Executed Wed 12/26/2012 16:37:03.82 │ As [MrCMD]

            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?

                    My appologize for any inconvenience happened..

                    Since I'm dealing to manage and maintain around 80 servers and more than 300 Window$ OS, I'm in progress to simplify the process of..

                    Check for DAT version,
                    Check for DAT date,
                    Generate symptoms while DAT is unexpected..

                    So far, I have "Machines_List.txt" like this.. (absolutely it's not a real hostname)

                    MachineNumber000

                    MachineNumber001

                    MachineNumber010

                    MachineNumber011

                    MachineNumber100

                    MachineNumber101

                    MachineNumber110

                    MachineNumber111

                    Then, I'm using script (check-mcafee-dat.cmd) to browse necessary information and (next) summarize them into TXT reporting file..

                    @echo off
                    for /f %%m in ('type Machines_List.txt') do (
                    echo %%m
                    reg.exe query "\\%%m\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\McAfee\AVEngine" /v "AVDatVersion"|find "AVDatVersion" /i
                    reg.exe query "\\%%m\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\McAfee\AVEngine" /v "AVDatDate"|find "AVDatDate" /i
                    echo.
                    )

                    I really appreciate for any availability of recommended software (developed by McAfee) for those purpose above. Thank you.

                      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.

                        I just captured it on "Right Click" - "About..." of McAfee icon near Taskbar Time Date Area.

                        Thank you and warm regards..

                          That is enterprise so I am moving this to its forum as users there would have an idea re what you are asking.
