Though they do have a free and portable version of this to update already installed software, the ability to install new software is only available through their paid version. So, for me, it becomes nearly useless. Not that the Premium or Technician editions are expensive, but still, not the same.

You can select and install from the home updater any software that isn't installed already...

The whole point of this thread is that PatchMyPC (the Home version) no longer has any categories, which is very confusing and off-putting. There is actually another thread with multiple people saying the same thing, on top of everyone in this thread (https://patchmypc.com/forum/index.php?topic=6224.0). The purpose of our recent replies with UCheck is that it was an alternative that DOES have categories. I just pointed out that UCheck Free does NOT allow you to install new software, only update currently installed software. We know that PatchMyPC DOES allow you to install new software, but that's not the point.

The thought occurs to that the latest version has numerous problems. Can the previous version be renumbered and replace the current version until the problems are fixed?

Just saw there is an update from 30.12 and thought "hopefully the categories are comming back" ...

Still not >:( this software is getting worse and worse, paint.net is already up to date and the app still don't recognize it and anydesk is getting still shown in the list even when the scanning for it is already disabled, since the 7.1.x version is a complete downgrade since aliases can be only used with a license.

Sad that there are no good alternatives

I'm using winget in powershell temporary until categories come back
