Get Quick Fix Engineering (QFE) or HotFix Information

@8arkz — June 20/17 — Added new Get-HotFix cmdlet details and example output from both methods.

Recently I have been tracking down all the updates that I have applied to various Windows machines (servers and clients) in my pod and figured I’d share the simple PowerShell script to capture the details into a txt file. There are a number of different properties that can be selected from the Get-WmiObject call so that is something you can customize for your own needs, in my case I just wanted the type of hotfix, provided in the description, the hotfix id that maps to KB articles and when the hotfix was installed.

Note: Applies to Windows Server all versions.

There is also the Get-HotFix cmdlet that can be used with Windows Server 2012, 2012 R2 and 2016.
