Exporting "Windows Updates" lists to text or xml.
Posted on 2006-07-11
Just wondering if there is a simple way of exporting the list of updates available through Windows Update, and existing updates on the system? Our auditors (god bless their cotton socks... cause I know I ain't blessing them!) want a printed list of all updates installed on our servers, and what ones are going to be installed.
So far, the only method is to print screen the windows update screen, but I'd much prefer it in XML or text, or anything other than images!
I have tried playing with the wuauclt.exe to see if it has any command line options, but to no avail. If anyone knows how to do this, it would be greatly appreciated.
