Using WMIC to Locate Installed Updates

The WMI command can be used to see if certain updates have been installed on a PC.

Use the following command:

wmic qfe get hotfixid | find “KB1234567”

To locate multiple updates, use the following format:

wmic qfe get hotfixid | find “KB4012212” & wmic qfe get hotfixid | find “KB4012215” & wmic qfe get hotfixid | find “KB4015549”
