Hi Stefan,
  Do you perform the copy of the wpkg.xml as a WPKG package?  If WPKG hasn't finished then the wpkg.xml file is locked.  How do you copy it?

I copy the local "%SystemRoot%\System32\wpkg.xml" file to a server location too.
This file contains the current state of the packages on the system.

A HTML or Excel report can be generated by the tool available at http://www.gig-mbh.de/edv/software/wpkgtools/wpkg-package-states-english.htm
