    PowerShell Output to Log File


    I know that "Get-Hotfix" in PowerShell will get me a nice output of my installed updates. Can someone point me in the right direction of how to get a log (for lack of a better term) file on my Desktop of this output. Thanks!

    :)

    [Help] Log File

    Hey all,

    Has anyone used the log file with powershell? I am looking to parse the log file but it is not being friendly. I save the log file as an XML and/or CSV but it doesn't really format the data correctly.
