Superseded Patches Show Missing During Patch Scan

Version 4



    Some administrators may see multiple versions of the same Patch detected as missing despite them all not needed for installation.


    An example of this is shown in the following screenshot:




    This behavior is caused by Protect having been altered from its default configuration to not use replacement patches/supersedence in its patch scans.




    To resolve this, only a simple configuration change needs to be made to enable supersedence in Protect.


    To do this:

    - Open up Shavlik Protect.

    - Go to Tools > Options > Scans.

    - Check the box next to Use Replacement patches to enable supersedence in Protect and eliminate unnecessary missing patches.

    - Rescan and you should see the desired patch scan results.
