Check what update I have?

I have Windows Vista 64 bit installed with Service Pack 2 and I want to update it to the latest 2017 updates. I was trying to install the Windows Vista Update Repository from greenhillmaniac on MSFN but I don't know how to check what updates were installed and what I have to install. Winver only shows the windows build not the security updates that were installed.

Is there a way to see what security updates I have installed and not just the build number?
If you want to know I am on build 6002 service pack 2

Yeah I noticed that is how I check the updates I installed. When I go to the passed installed updates I only see the other updates I installed thought the .msu
I wanted to fully update my system to the last 2017 updates and I ran the commands to install the .cab files and I get the installing updates thing when shutting down the computer but It never shows up in the passed installed updates.

You might also also check from programs and features. I'm not sure how that cab install method works.

It is not in the program and features. The only thing that is there is the screen drivers that I installed.

I found where the installed updates are. Turns out I had to click on installed updates instead of view update history. I am also using the updates from Josh Davison's video on YouTube since its easier to install the updates with those .bat files.

Sorry but you c;lick on installed updates from programs and features. If you've ever had issues with Windows update and had to reset your profile the history will be gone.

I never reset my profile history. To check the updates I went to view update history then installed updates and that worked. It is a new install.
