Andreas M has just released an update to his Windows Home Server Update History Add-In, bringing it to version 0.3.2.
What is Update History?
This add-in displays the complete system update history so that Windows Home Server owners can make sure their machine is fully patched and up to date.
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.
Here is what Andreas has to say about this update:
Version 0.3.0 Beta was released back in September 2009. Since then not a single bug has been reported. This means that the time has come to remove the beta tag from the Update History AddIn.
Nonetheless, two things have been improved since the previous release:
- A possible conflict with other AddIns has been resolved (thanks to Alex Kuretz from MediaSmartServer.net)
- It’s no longer possible to install the Update History AddIn over an existing installation. In this case you now are prompted to uninstall any existing version first.
Download Update History AddIn 0.3.2.
Important: Before installing the new release, please UNINSTALL any previous version!
As always, feedback is welcome. See the support page on how to get in touch with me.
