Re: How To Check Age Of Windows Installation
this is pretty basic... it's not very often that you need to know exactly when windows was installed.
and even then if the person who put windows onto your machine is using a disk image (like ghost) then you are going to find out when the disk image was created, not when the machine was created.
the same is true for Virtual machines in VMWare, systeminfo will tell you when the Original installation was made, (that was the installation that was transformed into a template! not the original installation of the OS that you are using!)
(you can find out a whole load of stuff from systeminfo (like physical platform, etc which can often be useful.)
in fact you get so much information that it's often better to use systeminfo > info.txt to pipe the information to a text file.
it gives you a whole bunch of patch information, but if you want to know when patches were installed (and by who)
use "wmic / q >> patches.txt" instead
