Windows 10 – Get & Export installed Updates

Sometimes it’s good to know which updates are installed on your client. Of course you can choose the regular way via the GUI elements of Windows but than you have no possibilities to export your result for filtering or reporting.

There are different ways to achieve that

  • Option 1 – CMD WMI querry
  • Option 2 – PowerShell
  • Option 3 – DISM


Option 1 – cmd wmi querry

HTML-Export

wmic qfe list full /format:htable > C:\patches.html

CSV-Export

wmic qfe list full /format:csv >C:\patches.csv


Option 2 – PowerShell

The same result can also be achived by using PowerShell:

CSV-Export PowerShell

Get-HotFix | Export-Csv -Path "C:\temp\patches.csv" -NoTypeInformation

if Get-Hotfix isn’t available you can also query the wmi by Powershell

get-wmiobject -class win32_quickfixengineering| Export-Csv -Path "C:\temp\patches.csv" -NoTypeInformation

 

To display installed “OnDemand Packages”, “Language Packages” or “Foundation Packages” you can run the following command:

Option 3 – dism

To display installed “OnDemand Packages”, “Language Packages” or “Foundation Packages” you can run the following dism command which somtimes could be easier to handle than the PowerShell scripts.

dism /online /Get-Packages /Format:Table
