Hi guys, is there a way to get a list of installed Windows updates on a remote machine?

The below powershell code does the trick but don't know if there's a way to do this within VB?

get-wmiobject -class win32_quickfixengineering -computername Machine1

The result of the above command looks like this:

updates.png
How do I get this result from VB?

One other thing, from that result, how do I get it to display the most recent date of the updates installed?
