WinUpdatesView v1.11 32bit

WinUpdatesView is a simple tool that displays the history of Windows updates on your system. WinUpdatesView can load the Windows updates history from your local system, using API, and it can also read and parse the Windows updates database file (DataStore.edb) from external drive or from remote computer on your network.
For every Windows update history record, WinUpdatesView displays the following fields: Title, Description, Install Date, Update Operation (Install, Uninstall, Not Started, In Progress), Operation Result (Succeeded, Succeeded With Errors, Failed, Aborted), Category, Information URL, Support URL, Uninstall Notes, Client Application ID, Service ID, Update ID, Revision Number, Unmapped Result Code, Server Selection, hResult

System Requirements
This tool works on any version of Windows, starting from Windows XP, and up to Windows 10. Both 32-bit and 64-bit systems are supported.

Version 1.11

Added 'KB Number' column.

Start Using Windows Updates History Viewer
WinUpdatesView doesn't require any installation process or additional DLL files. In order to start using it, simply run the executable file - WinUpdatesView.exe
After running WinUpdatesView, it loads the Windows updates history from your local system, using API, and displays the information on the main window. You can select one or more items and then export them to csv/tab-delimited/HTML5/XML/JSON file (File -> 'Save Selected Items' or Ctrl+S ), or you can copy them to the clipboard (Ctrl+C) and then paste them to Excel or other application.

If you want to load the Windows updates history from another source (remote computer or external drive), go to the 'Advanced Options' window (F9) and choose the desired options.

Quick Filter
If you want to search a specific Windows update, simply press Ctrl+Q, and in the 'Quick Filter' window, type the string you want to find, and WinUpdatesView will instantly display the Windows updates contain the string you typed.

Getting Windows updates history from a remote computer
You can view the Windows updates history of a remote computer, by opening the 'Advanced Options' window (F9), choosing 'Remote computer' in the 'Load From' combo-box and typing the remote computer name.
In order to access the Windows updates database on the remote computer, you need a full admin access with admin share ( \\ComputerName\Admin$ ).
Also, in many systems the Windows updates database is locked for reading, so in order to release the file, WinUpdatesView provides an option to temporarily stop the Windows Update service. If you choose this option, WinUpdatesView automatically stops the Windows Update service on the remote computer if the database is locked, reads the database file, and then starts again the Windows Update service.

Warning !! You should not use 'Temporarily stop the Windows Updates service' option while updates are downloaded and installed, because stopping the Windows update service will disrupt the update process.

Getting Windows updates history from external drive
In order to load the Windows updates history from external drive, simply go to the 'Advanced Options' window (F9), choose 'External database file' in the 'Load From' combo-box and then type the location of the database file. You can find the Windows updates database file in Windows\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\DataStore.edb

Windows version on status bar
The status bar displays the Windows version and build number taken from hal.dll, for both local computer and remote computer. Be aware that the displayed build number from hal.dll might be a little different from the build you see when using ver command.

The <column> parameter can specify the column index (0 for the first column, 1 for the second column, and so on) or the name of the column, like "Install Date" and "Title". You can specify the '~' prefix character (e.g: "~Description") if you want to sort in descending order. You can put multiple /sort in the command-line if you want to sort by multiple columns.
