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.

Hi Aaron,

Go to Control Panel and click SYSTEM INFORMATION. Always easier that trying to type the correct path and file names into RUN.

Luck, Jim

Hi

If you want a command line utility for hotfixes in Windows XP Home then you can download PsInfo from Microsoft's Sysinternals Suite.
PsInfo + Usage

You can download and extract the file to your Windows\System32 directory so that it is in the path. Then you can run:
Code:
psinfo -h > psinfo.txt
This will create a file psinfo.txt with a list of hotfixes. Though I do not know if this is in the format you require!
