Is it possible to identify what KBs are included in a Windows rollup patch (or is that not the right way to look at this)?

I have some software that is known to conflict with a specific patch (KBxxxxx), so until the vendor comes out with an update that fixes this conflict, I have to avoid installing that patch.

I'm assuming that Windows rollup patches include a stack of the various KB patches, but I haven't been able to identify a way to see what KBs are included.

I really don't want to not install patches, although that's an option (this is Windows server 2019).

I've done a fair bit of Googl'ing and I don't see an answer to these questions:

  1. Can I identify the contents of a rollup patch?
  2. Can I see if a particular KB was installed if it was part of a Rollup? . . So far, I've only been able to see what rollups were installed.
  3. Can I remove a specific KB after the rollup has been installed?
  4. Am I, in ignorance, approaching this the wrong way?

It's fairly simple really. Any KB updated newer than the KB that you haven't referenced will fail. All fixes are included in all subsequent monthly updates. You are referencing a way of patching that has not existed for over 15 years.

The problem is that I need a way to decide which patch/rollup to NOT install. I guess I'm looking at a situation where I just have to not install patches until the vendor catches up.

You can't install any patches.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
