Thanks George! We don't offer donations today for tax reasons, but the best way to support us is share the news on social media.

I am very satisfied with your great program PatchMyPC. Can I make a donation? Preferably not with cryto.

Kind regards, George form Holland

Yes, you can use the home updater.
It looks like this is posted in our free home updater space. Are you using SCCM or Intune or just the home updater?
Hi Mark,

Could you review the following and confirm if the updates were published and if the software update point was synchronized successfully? https://patchmypc.com/troubleshooting-why-third-party-updates-dont-show-in-sccm

Been through the setup video but everything looks ok but the PMPC doesn't show as a product under SUP

Any pointers I know this is going to be something small I have missed I guess.

The binaries are downloaded directly from the vendor's website.

I am evaluating third-party SCCM/Intune catalogs, Patch My PC seems the most promising, but I have a question.

Does Patch My PC have permission from software vendors to provide updates for their software?

For instance I was reading the EULA for DisplayLink and it says:

You may not install, copy, modify, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, create derivative works from, rent, sell, distribute, sublicense, offer as a service or transfer any part of the Software except as provided in this EULA or as permitted by applicable law...

So do you have permissions from the vendor? Is it even breaking copyright law as I am not familiar with it.

Thank you in advance.

May I suggest to your techs, to look in the powershell detection script structure, and add hash-type parameter and function to deal with file attribute detection (to match what ConfigMgr offers) much like you have a registry hash-parameter and function?

Would you be able to submit a feature request here https://ideas.patchmypc.com/ to ensure we are tracking this request.
We are aware of an issue where the home edition may not create a restore point.
It depends on how you configure the option "If the timeout expired and no action is taken". This should help https://patchmypc.com/manage-conflicting-processes-when-updating-third-party-applications#topic2

My client has an interesting question: if we allow x number of deferrals which are limited to a 5 minute display and return when the app eval cycle re-runs what if the end user missed them all ?   That may sound unlikely but I guess it's in the realm of possibility and that runs the risk of having , at best, an annoyed end user.  I know we can make that indefinite but many end users will see that as something to just ignore.

I was considering maintenance windows to make this more predictable but have i missed a more creative solution ?

Does this repro on every load?
When did you enable the delete shortcut option? We have the correct file name:

<ShortcutFileName>VLC media player</ShortcutFileName>

If you enable it after the update was published, it may not apply until the next update is released for VLC to remove shortcuts.
Can you open a case here: https://patchmypc.com/technical-support and attach the logs for updates not publishing? We will need logs to help more on this one.
Is this shortcut on the public desktop? Can you let us know what the shortcut filename is?
The requirements will only set on new applications or when an update is released for an application. This setting will not revise existing applications already created at the latest version on sync.

Hi - I have a few apps that I would like to set to only run on workstation OS.  In PMPC, I select to only allow on workstations; when I run a sync, the app doesn't appear at all in the summary email, and when I check the application's Requirements tab in deployment type, there are no entries.  Should I see something in there, or does the PMPC installer determine OS type?
