    Hi all,

    (new user here, just joined. Some great stuff found here over the years).

    I have a network of XP machines doing lab-testing stuff. I also have another XP sitting at the side as a scheduler, starting and stopping jobs on the other machines.

    Lately I’ve come across a few issues with Windows Updates.

    Does anyone know of a way of checking remotely whether updates have been downloaded and are waiting to be installed.

    I’ve tried using tasklist /s but all I can see is that the update client is running, not whether it has actually got anything waiting or not.

    I can’t see any difference in services or processes running when comparing two machines with and without updates waiting.

    I don’t want to turn the updates off, but equally I want to be able to selectively restart a machine when the scheduler deems it appropriate and necessary to do so.
