This is going to sound weird but I was wondering if there is a way to show in a list all of the installed Windows Updates.

yeah... control panel .. programs and features (i forget what it is called in XP) view installed updates (again i forget what it is exactly called in XP) these instructions work for 7 / vista

I know i can do that. I'm wanting to add this feature to my app so that I can use it in a PE environment.

sorry I didn't even see that this was in the VB forum - was just looking at unanswered threads.

ManagementObjectSearcher searcher = new ManagementObjectSearcher(new ObjectQuery("select * from Win32_QuickFixEngineering")); 
searcher.Options.UseAmendedQualifiers = true; 
searcher.Scope.Options.Locale = "MS_" + CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.LCID.ToString("X"); 
ManagementObjectCollection results = searcher.Get(); 

Console.WriteLine("\n==WMI==" + results.Count); 
foreach (ManagementObject item in results) 
{ 
    Console.WriteLine("\t--Properties--"); 
    foreach (var x in item.Properties) 
    { 
        Console.WriteLine(x.Name + ": " + item[x.Name]); 
    } 
    Console.WriteLine("\t--System Properties--"); 
    foreach (var x in item.SystemProperties) 
    { 
        Console.WriteLine(x.Name + ": " + x.Value); 
    } 
    Console.WriteLine("\t--Qualifiers--"); 
    foreach (var x in item.Qualifiers) 
    { 
        Console.WriteLine(x.Name + ": " + x.Value); 
    } 
}

thats c# ...

    { 
        Console.WriteLine(x.Name + ": " + x.Value); 
    } 
}

So what does this output to?

it's a console app...

your best bet would be to google WUAPI.DLL VB.NET
im sure it will turn up what you are looking for.

I did some googling and couldn't find anything that points to VB.NET. Everything I find is VBS.
