Where does windows 7 store update information


  • Does anyone know where windows 7 stores the list of updates that have been installed?  Prior versions of windows stored these in the registry but they no longer seem to be there.  I'm looking for the location of these in the file system or registry, not some application/script to run which tells me.

  • Forget it, there is no easy list. It is placed in several registry items and files.

    Use WMI (Win32_QuickFixEngineering) to get the installed updates.
