Relevance and Registry Keys

(imported topic written by ppomeroy91)


I thought I had my relevance correct because my fixlet came back with the proper clients however when I ran it, the clients are still showing it as relevant when I know it shouldn’t be (I verified the key DOES exist).

This one’s simple (for you guys).

not exists key “hklm\software\microsoft\WIndows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\kb943729” of registry or not exists key “hklmsoftware\microsoft\updates\windows xp \sp4\kb943729” of registry

The key DOES exist so why it still showing relevant?

Thanks in advance for you help.

does the key exist in both locations? you have them OR’d together… so if in either location it doesn’t exist… it’ll come back as true…

One key or both keys exist?

Also, you are missing a slash in the second one:

“hklm\software\microsoft\updates\windows xp \sp4\kb943729”

Looks like there is also an extra space in the second string “…\windows xp …”

The missing slash and space were just typos on my end. Sorry about that. I changed it to AND, instead of OR and it’s now working correctly. Thank you for your help.
