There's a service in the background: Code42Service.exe

Plus multiple occurrences of this process: Code42Desktop.exe
Hi Omar,

Thanks, that worked.
More details below in case anybody else has a similar issue.

At some point, an update ran that took OBS from 27.2.4 to 28.0.1.
According to OBS itself, it was running 28.0.1, and seemed to be working fine.
But Windows Control Panel (and Patch My PC) still thought it was 27.2.4
So PMP kept trying to update it, giving "Install Complete Exit Code 6".

I manually uninstalled then reinstalled OBS.
Got a message that files were being used by Crashplan.
After shutting that down the installer ran clean.
Now Control Panel and Patch My PC both report v28.0.1 installed.

I already have OBS Studio 28.0.1 installed.

Patch My PC is detecting 27.2.4
So every day, it downloads 28.0.1 (which is over 100MB) and attempts to install it.
When it finishes, it says "Install Complete Exit Code 6"

Please take a look, thanks

I use the built-in scheduler to run PMP daily. Sometimes an update will repeatedly fail (due to program in use, etc).

Is there any way to be notified of these failures?

Silently failing is not a good thing.

Seems like a failure should trigger something. For example, maybe the PMP window could remain up, or the log file could be opened.
