Sometimes when trying to find particular updates and troubleshoot Windows update problems you need to be able to manipulate the update data. Using the ‘installed updates’ applet is not always practical. I use the below script to give me a .csv files with all updates installed on a machine.
This is just a quick reference for anyone trying to quickly pull off a list of installed software from a remote machine. You will need the remote registry service (you can start this remotely from the services console) and WMI service running on the remote machine.
Recently I had to find a fast way of clearing space on a fileserver that was literally at bursting point, the 2TB disk had just 100MB free space remaining. I needed a way to identify the large, old files quickly so that I could then check with the file owners that they could be deleted.
Problem: How do I connect to my Office 365 Exchange environment via PowerShell?
