security update applied timeline

pma111 used Ask the Experts™
is there an easy way in server 2012, to determine the last time windows updates were applied to the server? I know there are tools and scripts to compare to what is installed on the server, but my question was slightly different, to determine the last date any particular update was applied, almost like a timeline of what updates were applied to the server and when date/time.

I would start with the PowerShell cmdlet Get-HotFix.  I believe it has the flexibility that you require.  See the article below for syntax and usage help...

Hope that helps!
