WMI data to an Array: Determine if a patch is needed

Recommended Posts

ksmith247

I have a rather involved AutoIT script that is used to update/patch XP computers in an off network situation. We have been rolling out Windows 7 for a while and I need to start patching these guys too; however XP and 7 are quite different in relation to security updates.

In XP I was able to read HKLM\software\Microsoft\Windows\Currentversion\Uninstall to determine the existence of a security update or hotfix (hereafter referred to as patch). If the script found the KB number in the registry then the patch is already installed and it skipped to the next patch. This is not an option in Windows 7 and WMI seems to be the best place to get what I am looking for.

I know in Win32_QuickFixEngineering there is a property called HotFixID. I think I need to read this and dump it into an array, search the array and if the search is positive skip installing the particular patch (searching for KB255987 for example). I am having major trouble getting WMI data into an array. I have read the array wiki and searched through the forums. I am also pretty sure that I am making it much more confusing than it should be but I just can't seem to wrap my head around this one. A nudge in the right direction would be most appreciated.

EDIT: it wasn't a udf but this should help: http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/StringSplit.htm

My UDFs are generally for me. If they aren't updated for a while, it means I'm not using them myself. As soon as I start using them again, they'll get updated.

What code do you have so far? My suggestion is look at the wiki section which discusses about Arrays. Also have a look at this example I posted the other day which adds items to an Array >> you should also look at ReDim too.

It's not much but something I puled from an old script. It does however look in WMI at QFE and display all installed patches.

#include <array.au3>
 
$objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & @ComputerName & "\root\CIMV2")
$colItems = $objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select HotFixID from Win32_QuickFixEngineering")
$message = "HotFixes Installed on " & @ComputerName & @CRLF & "-------" & @CRLF
For $objItem In $colItems
$message &= $objItem.HotFixID & @CRLF
Next
MsgBox(64, "Results", $message)

My suggestion is look at the wiki section which discusses about Arrays. Also have a look at this example I posted the other day which adds items to an Array >> you should also look at ReDim too.

I have read the Array Wiki; it just doesn't compute for me. Again, I am probably making it more difficult (in my head) than it has to be.

On a side note, this is the first time the #include in my signature has actually worked.

OK, so to make it simple use StringSplit() as suggested by rcmaehl >>

#include <Array.au3>

Global $aArray

$aArray = _GetHotFixes()
_ArrayDisplay($aArray)

Func _GetHotFixes()
Local $oColItems, $oWMIService, $sOutput
$oWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & @ComputerName & "\root\CIMV2")
$oColItems = $oWMIService.ExecQuery("Select HotFixID From Win32_QuickFixEngineering", "WQL", 0x30)

For $oItem In $oColItems
$sOutput &= $oItem.HotFixID & ";"
Next
Return StringSplit(StringTrimRight($sOutput, 1), ";")
EndFunc ;==>_GetHotFixes

Windows 7 still lists the KB updates in the registry in the same place that Windows XP had it.The format has changed, in that the KB # isn't in the Default key any longer, but you can find the knowledge base number from the HelpLink or MoreInfoURL keys instead, they end in /kb/xxxxxxx where xxxxxxx is the knowledge base number.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

There is absolutely no way I would have ever arrived here. Thank you for your time and to rcmaehl too.

I didn't explain what I was doing but it seems you have an understanding of the basics so I'm sure you can grasp what I did.

      Hi everyone, I'm at best a noobie.  I have read through the Array helps, and specifically the 2D array help file, and I'm struggling to get my code working.
      I have an array that is read from a file, thats working great.  I'm trying to do some math on the array, so I can find the largest, average, lowest, day over day change %, etc.
      The array read working fine, I get 43 lines, line 0 is 44, and then I get data that looks like
      0519 $10,000
      0520 $10,001
      0521 $10,002
      The data in this array is a single 1D array, breaking it out into 2 columns so I can do the math is what I can get to happen.  
      How do I reference the array to store this data?  Second, how do I assign this data to the appropriate row/column?
      Thanks in advance.
      Dim $all_cash_amounts[UBound($aInput)][2] Dim $max_amount_in_account Dim $min_amount_in_account _FileReadToArray($LC_Check_file_path, $aInput) _ArrayDisplay($aInput) local $date = StringRegExp($aInput[1], "(\d\d\d\d)", 1) local $cash = StringRegExp($aInput[1], "\d+\s(-?[0-9\.\,]+)", 1) ConsoleWrite("Date is: " & $date & @CRLF) For $i = 1 To UBound($aInput)-1     $date = StringRegExp($aInput[$i], "(\d\d\d\d)", 1)     $all_cash_amounts[$i][2] = $date[$i][0], $cash[$i][1]      Next _ArrayDisplay($all_cash_amounts)

      Given an array with multiple columns that is displayed in a listview,
       ===> What is the fastest/most efficient way to create and manage multiple filters and display results in ListView.
      I have a text file that loads into a listview that has string, numeric, and date columns.  The main file contains about 5100 rows. It's loaded into an array and (in this ListView) it's pre-filtered to display a range of rows based on a start and end date.  On the form I have menu options for various filters. (see below).
      I have options to filter on an "Air Date" column (=Today, >=Today, <=Today) and on a numeric field that is either 1 or 0 that indicate Active or Ended.

      For each filter option I have a prebuilt array that holds a subset of the main array based on a single filter.  For the list above I have the main Array and 5 additional arrays.  None of the arrays are updated since this is for "view only" purposes.  This is a short list and I could have done the filtering "live" but I have several of these forms and so kept the same functionality in each. I have another ListView that displays the complete 5100 row list with 3 filters that, when building the filters live was considerably slower than using prebuilt arrays.
      If I want to expand past simple single column filtering, using an array for each filter becomes cumbersome especially if I want to combine filters using AND & OR.
      The text file I'm working with has 16 columns. If I setup filters for 4 columns and include AND / OR capability that would require prebuilding 24 arrays to cover the various combinations.
      If using the slower method of building a filtered array in real time each time a different filter is selected is the only way to go with this then I'll live with it. It is less overhead. .
      Below is the code I'm currently using to "filter" an array.  My next change was going to add AND / OR functionality (see the info above the header for where I was going with this) .
      ; Description ...: Delete rows from an array and only keep rows that meet the crtieria of identified columns. ; ; Next Change: Add AND/OR to combine filters. Use array to hold multiple criteria and values? ; ; Local $aCriteria[][] = [["",$iColNbr1, $sOperator1, $vValue1], ["AND",$iColNbr2, $sOperator2, $vValue2], ["OR",$iColNbr3, $sOperator3, $vValue3]] ; The first set of criteria ["", $iColNbr1, $sOperator1, $vValue1] must start with a "". ; If anything is entered in that first parameter it will be ignored. ; If the first parameter in any additional criteria set is left blank, or it is not OR, it will default to AND. ; If $aArray is 1 dimension with more than one set of criteria, only the first set will be used. ; Any criteria that uses a column that is less than 0 or higher than the total number of columns in the array will return an error. ; ; Recognized data types for this function are: S (String), D (Date), N (Number). ; ; Recognized Operators are: "EQ", "NEQ", "IN", "GT", "GE", "LT", "LE", "BETWEEN". ; ****** Not all operators work with all data types. ; #FUNCTION# ==================================================================================================================== ; Name ..........: _ArrayFilter ; Description ...: Delete rows from an array and only keep rows that meet the crtieria of identified columns. ; Syntax ........: _ArrayFilter(Byref $aArray[, $iCol = 0[, $sOperator = "EQ"[, $vValue = ""[, $iOptionBase = 0]]]]) ; Parameters ....: $aArray - Array being filtered. ; $iCol - [optional] Column to filter.

      1. This is a line|Messages: a message etc|Context: a context etc 2. This is a line|Messages: a message etc|Context: a context etc 3. This is a line|Messages: a message etc|Correction: a correction|Context: a context etc For exporting in another software. I need to split every time there is a number when the line start, can be 1. until something like 3.976. Since i don't know if there a 2 line after a number or 3 i have opened this thread. Thanks

      The last couple of day's I was searching on this forum for the best way to put array's inside array's.
      The best example's i found where a little outdatet (2010) whit a lot of pro's and con's.
      Now I've a big script where a lot of computations and big array's are involved, so speed is a big issue.
      Also I wanna try the script below but don't know iff speed is a problem this way or maybe there is a better way to do this.

      Does somebody know's the best way to put array's inside array's and get the data back from them?
      I've made an example of something I was thinking about.
      (maybe something totaly wrong but I'm open for sugestions)
      I'm doing it this way because I don't think I can access the data inside the array (and doing some calculations to it) some other way if the array is inside another array.
      Or is there?
      Thanks in advanced.
      #include <Array.au3> Global $aArray[Random(5,10,1)][Random(5,10,1)] Global $Holder[2][2] For $x = 0 To UBound($aArray,1) - 1 For $y = 0 To UBound($aArray,2) - 1 $aArray[$x][$y] = Round(Random(-1,1),4) Next Next $Holder[0][0] = $aArray $aArray = "" Global $get_array = $Holder[0][0] _ArrayDisplay($get_array)

      Hello,
      I'm trying to randomly change some cells in a array on a given percentage.
      at this point I 've a array whit all 0's and want to change some cells to 1.
      I'm not shure how to do this in a good coding sort of way.
      Also maybe there is a build in function whish I'm not aware of.
      Does somebody know how I can do this in a easy way?
      I was trying to get the total count of cells and get the percentage of it.
      And was stuck when i wanna change the cell.
      please advice, thanks in advanced for your help.
      #include <Array.au3> Global $percentage = 0.2 Global $aArray[Random(10,30,1)][Random(10,30,1)] For $x = 0 To UBound($aArray,1) - 1 For $y = 0 To UBound($aArray,2) - 1 $aArray[$x][$y] = 0 Next Next _ArrayDisplay($aArray) randomize() _ArrayDisplay($aArray) Func randomize() Local $total_to_change = ((UBound($aArray,1) * UBound($aArray,2)) / 100) * $percentage ConsoleWrite( "$total_to_change = " & $total_to_change & @LF ) ConsoleWrite( "total in array = " & (UBound($aArray,1) * UBound($aArray,2)) & @LF ) EndFunc
