Can someone help? I need to pull the information below from a list of machines but I cant get it to work when trying multiple machines .

This works
Get-HotFix -ComputerName Server1 | select PSComputerName,InstalledOn,__PATH,Caption,HotFixID,InstalledBy | Export-Csv Data.csv -nti

If I try to pull from a list , it does not work .
gc servers.txt | Get-HotFix | select PSComputerName,InstalledOn,__PATH,Caption,HotFixID,InstalledBy | Export-Csv Data2.csv -nti

Error:
Get-HotFix : The input object cannot be bound to any parameters for the command either because the command does not take pipeline input or the input and its properties do not match any of the parameters that take pipeline input.
