Windows OS Version sensor




Is see the WMI Windows Version sensor has been deprecated. (https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/wmi_windows_version_sensor) Is there some native sensor we can use to monitor this instead?

I see there are third party sensors for this specifically but we would rather minimize manual deployment as we're an MSP and have a lot of probes.

use case: We currently do a manual check of Windows versions for all of our customers once in a while. We would rather get a warning or error for older versions we need to upgrade.

Kind regards, Wim

I would recommend trying the following sensor:
