But Windows XP with sp2 enhance the security configuration and block
these checking way. So we can not do local check on Windows XP sp2 except ask customers to do a lot of complex configuration.

Well, with the enhanced security configuration and firewall enabled, the vulnerability is no longer "remotely exploitable", is it?

If you want to check for local vulnerabilities, you'll to run something client-side. There's at least a half-dozen ways to do this in a domain model (eg: GPO or logon scripts) -- but in a standalone environment, you'll need an agent of some type.
