More software update suggestions
« on: December 27, 2014, 05:02:36 AM »
Thanks for your incredibly helpful Patch My PC! Here they go:

Subtitle Edit - excellent subtitle editor, offers several silent switches: /SP-, /SILENT, /VERYSILENT, /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES
Pale Moon - stellar Firefox-based browser, now essentially independent (differences here), 32/64-bit versions, /ms silent switch
SumatraPDF - very fast, lightweight PDF reader, also requested by other users
eMule - popular P2P client, can't find silent information.
WinUAE - excellent Amiga emulator, /quiet switch
AutoHotKey - also requested by another user
Trillian - popular multi-protocol messenger, can't find silent info though and it might install bloatware.
Startup Delayer - excellent startup control utility, can't find silent info atm (author should be happy to reply if asked)

We are starting to add the titles that support silent install and no bloat ware you requested above.

Thanks a lot for your great work, I noticed!  :)

About Startup Delayer, Patch My PC mentions version 1.1.19.01 but the current version is 3.0.363. Also, on programs that have both x86/x64 versions available and their x86 version can be installed on a 64-bit system (like MPC-HC) maybe it'd be best to offer both options (like you do with Java), since sometimes they are preferable (more stable).

The detection logic should work fine with version 3. This is a UI bug where it's displaying the wrong versions. Should have this fixed in the next update.
