It would be great to have a smart group check for software version using greater than or less than.
This would be most helpful for those pesky updates that only apply to certain versions of software. For Office 2011, you could use these new smart groups to target the 14.1 update to computers with version 14.0 and greater than 14.0, but less than 14.1 and target the 14.1.4 update to computers with version 14.1.0 or greater.
As a few users have explained below, many software titles are versioned in such a way that makes this problematic. For example, when a version has more than one decimal point or includes a letter, "greater/less than" determinations are tough to automate.
However with the new patch reporting functionality in 9.93, we have cataloged the versions of 34 third-party software titles, allowing us to reliably perform "greater/less than” calculations for these titles. You can now use “greater/less than” as the operator for smart groups based on any of these titles.
