    Ugh I had this nifty tool about 3 months ago but i can't find it now and can't remember the name. It was command prompt based you typed in the exe and it scanned the PC giving all the patches applied.

    Anyone know what this is? I cant' remember if its native or a downolad.

    Thats it thanks man.

    Setting up WSUS today and I am doing a test run. I'll run this tool on a machine apply 1 patch it does not have and let it sit overnight. It should apply and reboot all on its own if I have done this right.

    Um This only lists certain KBs applied not them all?

    I ran it again today and had the same list as yesterday (even after I manually reapplied one KB article I applied via WSUS).

    Just wondering if this util does not list all but only checks certain KB installs?
