I just loaded PSI 2beta 1.9.0.4001 on a Windows Server 2008 (32-bit, original edition), and though the initial scan appeared to complete correctly, it did give me the error:

"Check that the Windows Update service is running on the Host and that you use the correct administrative login credentials.\n\nNOTE: This means that certain Microsoft products for this Host, are listed with a potential incorrect security state. (ID: 20000)."

This system is a Domain Controller and a WSUS 3.0SP1 server. It definitely is successfully running Windows Updates (both for itself and as it serves updates to my home network).. but maybe this is simply an incompatible combination? .. or just an oversight which PSI would need to know a bit more about to understand properly?

Thanks,
Jay

It's not an OS that's supported by PSI.
