Windows Update logging has been moved to Event Viewer in Windows 10 v1607

In previous Windows versions if you had problems with Windows Update, the first place to look for detailed information was C:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log file.
In Windows 10 v1607 WindowsUpdate.log file doesn't log any information, instead logging has been moved to System log in Event Viewer.

WindowsUpdate.log now says:

Windows Update logs are now generated using ETW (Event Tracing for Windows).
Please run the Get-WindowsUpdateLog PowerShell command to convert ETW traces into a readable WindowsUpdate.log.
