Is there a native command line that you can run on Win2k, XP and even Vista that will display all of the patches you have installed? I remember there was something but I forgot what the syntax was. It displayed KB123456, KB987654 etc...etc... as installed on your system.

Thank you.

- Set your Explorer folder options to display hidden and system files (any package have these set ON?!?)
- DIR $*. > %temp%\patchlist.txt

There will, without question, be a script somewhere to do that but you gotta love the simplicity, right? :)

Thanks but I need to do this on remote systems that may not have this feature turned on. I do recall there was a command line that when run would display this but I can't remember what it was.

Thanks. But I know Microsoft had a way to do this. There is a command line you can run from native NT/DOS that will list installed patches. I am still trying to remember/find it [:D]

mhsl808,

I think you might be thinking of SYSTEMINFO

U:\>systeminfo /?

SYSTEMINFO [/S system [/U username [/P [password]]]] [/FO format] [/NH]

Description:
This command line tool enables an administrator to query for basic
system configuration information.

Parameter List:
/S system Specifies the remote system to connect to.

/U [domain\]user Specifies the user context under which
the command should execute.

/P [password] Specifies the password for the given
user context. Prompts for input if omitted.

/FO format Specifies the format in which the output
is to be displayed.
Valid values: "TABLE", "LIST", "CSV".

/NH Specifies that the "Column Header" should
not be displayed in the output.
Valid only for "TABLE" and "CSV" formats.

/? Displays this help/usage.

Examples:
SYSTEMINFO
SYSTEMINFO /?
SYSTEMINFO /S system
SYSTEMINFO /S system /U user
SYSTEMINFO /S system /U domain\user /P password /FO TABLE
SYSTEMINFO /S system /FO LIST
SYSTEMINFO /S system /FO CSV /NH

Hope this helps,
