Windows Update Viewer v0.5.12

A free and open source application that displays Windows Update history in an easier layout than Windows does.

It is meant to be a lightweight application that is easy to use. There aren't any confusing categories; every update is listed in one place. Updates that you don't want to see can be permanently excluded or temporarily filtered.

Windows Update Viewer (WUView) uses the Windows Update API and Windows event logs to display details of installed updates. Event log entries are associated with individual updates by using the "KB" number. If an update does not use a KB number or isn't presented in a consistent format, no event log entries will be displayed.

• View details for each update.
• Easily exclude entries, such as Defender.
• Link to the Support URL.
• Link to HResult explanation (the HResult is placed in the clipboard).
• Toggle the details pane.
• Save to a text or CSV file.
• Open Windows Update from the app.
• Choose accent color and one of three themes.
• Adjust app size and row spacing. (Helpful for us users that don't see as well as we used to.)

WUView requires up-to-date .Net 6.0

Known Issues
• It is possible that certain updates will show "InProgress" in the Result column even though they were successfully installed, and the machine has been rebooted. Those updates will have HResult code 0x80242014 which translates to WU_E_UH_POSTREBOOTSTILLPENDING "The post-reboot operation for the update is still in progress." This persists over multiple reboots. This appears to happen only when running Windows 10. Windows 11 doesn't seem to be subject to this bug.
• Update history is reset when a Windows upgrade is installed. On my machine, once Windows 11 22H2 was installed, all previous update history was unavailable.
• Certain methods to "repair" Windows Update problems can remove all the update history available to Windows Update Viewer. Deleting files or folders under Windows\SoftwareDistibution seems to be the culprit.
• The total number of updates shown in Windows Update Viewer will not necessarily match what is shown in Update History in the Settings app. For example, on my machine, Update History shows 50 "Definition Updates" for Defender and Windows Update Viewer shows over 700. Microsoft probably has a legitimate reason for capping the number of updates shown.
