Find which Hot-Fixes (KBs) you have installed in Microsoft Dynamics AX

Within Update 2 of Microsoft Dynamics AX, it is now possible to check which hot-fixes are installed. From Visual Studio, under the Dynamics AX menu, select Addins > Apply Hotfix. Then in the Apply Hotfix form, select the View Installed Hotfixes tab.

However, in RTW and Update 1 it was not so straight forward to determine the hot-fixes (KBs) you have installed. So, I have created the following PowerShell script to list the fixes you have in your packages folder. Please provide me with feedback on improvement suggestions or if you find any issues with the script.
