  • Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer 2

    • Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer 2 is installed in the Program files location and not the Program Files (x86). I have a 64 bit system and I tried to install the x86 version of Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer 2 and it wouldn't let me. 
      
      How do I fix this, because you script that is using Get-32BitProgramFilesPath is looking in the wrong directory.    
    • then correct the directory location from the script itself!

    • Hi Adam,
      Have you thought about or tried using MBSA remotely?
      In your way of working, MBSA has to be installed on all the machines, and with the hundreds of servers we have, that is a pain. 
      Regards,
      Jacques
