BGInfo: display last Windows patch date / patch level RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    is there a way to have BGInfo displays info about Windows 10 patch level? I´m not talking about Windows build but real patch level or just the last applied patch (and date maybe).

    I´m searching a method that allows the operator to immediately identify, locally on computer screen, if the computer has been updated with latest patch we distributed via SCCM.

    Thanks in advance for any help

  • Hey :) Since Windows 10 the registry keys for successful auto updates are not available anymore.
    -> HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update\Results - is gone

    What i am doing in BGInfo is using the following fields:

    Fields -> Custom -> New -> Name: "ReleaseID"

    Type: Registry Value

    Path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ReleaseId

    Fields -> Custom -> New -> Name: "CurrentBuild"

    Type: Registry Value

    Path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\CurrentBuild

    Fields -> Custom -> New -> Name: "CurrentMajorVersionNumber"

    Type: Registry Value

    Path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\CurrentMajorVersionNumber

    Fields -> Custom -> New -> Name: "CurrentMinorVersionNumber"

    Type: Registry Value

    Path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\CurrentMinorVersionNumber

    Fields -> Custom -> New -> Name: "Revision"

    Type: Registry Value

    Path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\UBR

    Fields -> Custom -> New -> Name: "Hotfixes"

    Type: WMI Query

    Path: select InstalledOn from Win32_QuickFixEngineering

    Then i add the following strings in BG-INFO Screen:

    Release ID / Version:   <ReleaseID>
    Build:                          <CurrentBuild>
    Patch-Version:             <CurrentMajorVersionNumber>.<CurrentMinorVersionNumber> - UBR: <Revision>
    Latest Hotfixes:            <HOTFIXES>

    I think the only chance is to create an vbscript or using the WMI Query... and the query isn't full functional - no orders, no Group by,..., i tried different ways for the last 5 hours now...

    I am not able to post an screenshot cause my account isn't veryfied - so here is an link how the config looks like:
