VB6 - Get Powershell script result via VB6

Hi, I normally use below Powershell script to pull the Windows Update status.

get-service wuauserv | select Displayname,Status,ServiceName,Can*

Open in new window

Now what i would like to do is to run that script via my VB6 application.
So by clicking on a button, it give me the result in a msgbox.

I'm able to do it for the "ipconfig" but not able for "wuauserv"

This is what i have so far:
Private Sub Command1_Click()
'get-service wuauserv | select Displayname,Status,ServiceName,Can*

Dim WshShell, oExec
Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

Set oExec = WshShell.Exec("ipconfig")

Do While oExec.Status = 0
     'WScript.Sleep 100
MsgBox oExec.StdOut.ReadAll
End Sub

Open in new window

Thanks for your help
