  • Patch Lady – Hey want to vote this up?

    Posted on August 19th, 2019 at 23:56 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Hey I spotted this on the feedback center…. if you are running Windows 10 want to help me vote this up?  I want the old text file back.  The current windowsupdate.log file is nearly useless.

    The powershell get-windowsupdatelog replacement for the original real-time windowsupdate.log is not a suitable solution. It is slow to generate logs, often crashes when generating the log file, and takes away the ability to monitor the log in real-time. Using powershell to generate the log makes it totally unsuitable for troubleshooting in a support environment.
    Please bring back the original windowsupdate.log functionality.
