    Check the patch Definition Version under the scan summary.  Sometimes a deployment is based on a older scan job that detected the patch as missing.  See How to check Protect Definition Versions for instructions to check Definitions version and to refresh files.  If Patch Assessment version is outdated, refresh files and re-scan to see if the patch is still showing as missing.  If the patch is still listed Under "Patch Missing", follow the troubleshooting steps in the document Protect Detects A Patch That Should Not Be Detected As Missing to determine if the Shavlik detection logic is in error. If the patch definition logic seems to be is in error, follow instructions under the Information to Send to Support section of the same document and open a case with Shavlik Support


    If Shavlik Protect is detecting the missing patch correctly and manual installation fails, the Windows Update Service may not be working properly  Refer to the following Microsoft posts:
