How to run Windows Update Scan from Powershell or CMD RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We use an RMM software to manage Windows Updates. 

    It uses the Windows Update API to Schedule and Report back installed/missing patches.

    One thing it is unable to do is update the 'Last Checked' or 'Last Scanned' time on the Windows 10 Machines.

    Is there a command I can run on the machines that will run a scan, but not install the updates?

    On older OSs it could be done or we edit the below. 

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update\Results\Detect\* keys with the (yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss string but these regkeys have since been removed from Windows 10.

    Thank you.
