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.
