Is there any way you can determine what patches has been applied to a client PC, using VB?

I've got an Admin screen where I want to display a list of all patches applied. This will make it easy for the Administrator to see what releases and patches are installed.

Because you used the word "patch", I'll assume that you are using an MSI based product (Developer). If that is true, you can ask MSI for a list of applied patches.

The MSI help file has a topic called "Patches property". You pass it your product code. You get back a list of patches.
