wrong date of installdate on the output of wmic /node:server01 QFE get HotFixID, InstalledBy, InstalledOn

Hi all,

i am trying to export a list of all the installed Windows security patches on Windows 2008 SP2 servers for log management purposes.
i am using this command:

wmic /node:server01 QFE get HotFixID, InstalledBy, InstalledOn
and i got the wrong installedOn date, here is what i get :
HotFixID                                InstalledBy                                      InstalledOn
{AC76BA86-7AD7-0000-2550-7A8C40000934}                                                   20100922

what i need to know is:
the list of the installed patches sorted by installeddate/installedOn, but for some reasons the output of above command did not show the installeddate/installedOn correctly

do you know how to get the list with the correct installeddate/installedOn ?
do you know of any utility that we can do the same thing instead of the wmic command ?

there is one link about this :

but i dont want to use PowerShell cmdlet
thanks

This is not exactly what you are looking for but I wanted to offer it.....

Puts it into a nice pretty HTML format....

wmic QFE get HotFixID, InstalledBy, InstalledOn /format:htable >C:\Temp\hotfixes.htm

Course it works as a local command, dont think you can use the ">export" with a remote node..... Might just have the syntax wrong...

"According to the research, when we use WMI class: Win32_QuickFixEngineering to query the InstalledOn property, the system will return an encoded Date String (HEX). "
i know the InstalledOn is shown in enconded Hex and we cant read this,
