What freeware non-intrusive (ie don't change the registry)
or Windows command can list out the MS security/mandatory
patches that are installed in servers & the dates they're installed?

Oh, sorry, if I scroll further down, I'll see the answers.

Just one last query.  When I issued the command below, the initial
batch of patches do not reflect the install dates;  it's only those
displayed further down have install dates.  Why is this so?
