I saw an interesting issue in the forums this weekend I have noticed before, but never connected the dots on my own.
The Path value is empty in some alerts. The default SMTP message format includes a line labeled “Path:”, but often there is nothing next to this label.
Event Description: FileVersionCheck.vbs : System is NOT patched with KB979257
Alert Rule: Alert for dll version verification.

According to Tenchuu, the issue is simple – The Path only exists on hosted classes. Windows Computer is not a hosted class, therefore it has no path as it has no parent.
Windows Operating System is a hosted class and is hosted by Windows Computer, therefore the Path property in Operating System is the Windows Computer name.
Good to know!
