hi, thanks for the reply, unfortunatly it didnt work on xp home, but it does display an info box on 7. I was hoping for a command line program. the systeminfo displays the installed hotfixes which is the bit i want really, 'cos im writing a script which downloads and installs windows updates from a 3rd party server rather than windows update server, and i need a way to check to see what updates are already installed. I planned to use the systeminfo to wrie the list of hotfixes to a txt file, then my script would check the txt file for the update and if it finds it, then it will skip to the next 1.
