Get-Hotfix returns to PowerShell in PowerShell v7 preview 5 – at least on Windows.


PS> Get-Command Get-HotFix -Syntax

Get-HotFix [[-Id] <string[]>] [-ComputerName <string[]>] [-Credential <pscredential>] [<CommonParameters>]

Get-HotFix [-Description <string[]>] [-ComputerName <string[]>] [-Credential <pscredential>] [<CommonParameters>]


It still uses the Win32_QuickFixEngineering CIM class under the covers which is why its Windows only.


My preferred way of using Get-Hotfix is

PS> Get-HotFix | Sort-Object -Property InstalledOn –Descending


That way I see the most recent fixes at the top of the list and its easier to determine if the system is up to date.
