  2. Hello liyong,

    Check out:

    Here are all updates are located in the registry, unfortunal not that readable.
    So if you search for the KB number it should be listed there within it's
    own folder.

    Best regards

    thank you, Meinolf Weber,
    I still have some questions:
    I checked the 'HKLM\components\canonicaldata\deployments' , it samed as
    you wrote, I can not get the required infomation from this
    Register key and it's sub key.

    My question is:

    How could we get the detail infomation from the sub key of
    'HKLM\components\canonicaldata\deployments' ?
    such as : KB number, hot fix description, included files

  4. Hello liyong,

    All info you have listed is in the belonging KB article included.

    So if the KB number is not listed and you don't see it under installed updates,
    you can install it and then you will see if it installes or a message pops
    up that states it is already installed.

    Best regards
