    Result with the version from here:
    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. Windows XP Professional (Service Pack 3) x32 [5.1.2600.196608]
    3. Cannot detect Windows Updates
    4. Main: Last install from WindowsUpdate is dated NEVER !!!
    5. WMP (Registry): not installed
    6. WMP (wmp.dll): PVersion [11.0.5721.5280]
    7. WMP (wmp.dll): FVersion [11.0.5721.5280]
    8. Press any key to continue . . .
    Sure. :)
    I have "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update", but I don't have Results below that. I wonder if that is because I usually disable auto-updates (updates handled manually)?
    The only date I can see under WindowsUpdate that might represent the last time I did an update [through update.microsoft.com, as I always do] is "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\LastRestorePointSetTime".

    AFAIR MP has always logged that my last update time is "NEVER !!!". It's not true of course... :D

    i think LastRestorePointSetTime is self-explanatory and not that what we are seeking for. I will investigate (not so long though because XP is marked as deprecated by MP)

    Can you in the meantime check the presence and content of HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\WindowsFeatures\WindowsMediaVersion\Version Key?

    Yep, understood, accepted and agreed. Just trying to be helpful. :)

    Sure. :)
    I have "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\WindowsFeatures", but I don't have "WindowsMediaVersion" below that. The only sub-key within that "folder"/key is "Windows Media Player", and the value of that key is 1 (DWORD).

    @mm1352000 as i don't have XP to test - can you test attached app for WUpdates? it won't go online and should check only installed updates. The way it checks works in W7 and W10 (tested in my host OS W7 and in VM with W10)

    Output is:

    3. r Microsoft Office Word 2007 (KB2956109)
    4.  
    [edit: ...and the date above is exactly the date in the LastRestorePointSetTime sub-key that I previously mentioned.]
    [edit 2: ...and for now it seems LastRestorePointSetTime is the only sub-key in the entire registry which contains that date. I'll keep looking though.]

    Yes, as far as I remember. I haven't updated for a long time because there are no real updates anymore.
