Windows Home Server AddIn: Update History

April 13th, 2009

This addin displays the complete system update history so that Windows Home Server owners can make sure their machine is fully patched and up to date.

This is what it looks like:

WHSUpdateHistory_good

Updates can be listed in groups (grouped by installation date). The details panel shows descriptive information on the update selected in the list. For updates that contain a Microsoft Knowledgebase article id in their title a direct link to the respective article is provided.

You can review the Windows Update log file and the system event log from the toolbar. So in case an update installation failed you can easily access the logs to find out the reason for the failure.

Download Update History AddIn 0.2.0 Beta.

Have a lot of fun with this release. Feedback is welcome via Email.

    Following the Internet Explorer 8 Update for WIndows Server 2003 (11/5/2009) This addin began to make WHS Console crash every time it opened. Uninstalling this addin fixed the issue. Hope the author creates a fix soon.

    Are you sure you had the latest version (0.3.0 Beta) of the Update History AddIn installed? I’ve tested it thoroughly with WHS PP1, PP2, IE6, IE7 and IE8.

    I had a whole string of indications of a failed update from Microsoft. I decided that if I unloaded Update History from the server and then was to reload it would refresh the listinngs. The problem I have encountered is the complete uninstall failed, and now the program is not available. I removed the ver. 3.0 beta file from the addin folder and redowwnloaded it but it does not show up on the server in the available list. It still shows on the installed list but is broken.
