Scenario: you have pc’s reporting in, and when you look at a hardware inventory, your Intel Core 2 Duo pc’s are showing up as PIII Xeon’s (sounds weird but it does happen).

Solution: Contrary to popular belief, this is NOT a SCE problem, but a problem that has been recognized and addressed by Microsoft. The WMI call does exactly what it should however, the processor is incorrectly identified. The hotfix is here. Keep in mind, this is a request-only hotfix, and only effects XP and Server 2003 machines.
