Maybe some of this is included in the Pro version that the About screen eludes to...

It would be nice to be able to post (like on an intranet) or pass (via command line param) a configuration file that would specify which apps to try to install and/or update.  For instance, at my work place, we have several applications that are very sensitive to Java version, so we would like to withhold that update on our PC's.  It would also be nice to force the install of other software to all PC's, such as Keepass.

After an application had been installed or updated, it would be handy to be able to kick off a configuration script.  Many times that would just be a registry file to pre-populate some settings, but leaving it open-ended for a .VBS file would probably be more universal.

Having the ability for end-users to add software to the list would be great.  I'm not sure what your mechanism looks like, but if a simple XML/INI file could be created to identify software versions and download locations, that would make it much faster for not only us as an end-user, but also you as the developer/maintainer.  On a related note, I checked the box to update my KeePass installation, which it did, but it didn't install the very latest version.  PatchMyPC installed version 2.18, but 2.19 is out.

I think I saw someone else requesting it, but being able to install from a local copy would save us a lot of time and bandwidth in the corporate environments.

I like what you have going here.  It has a lot of potential for home use, repair-shop use, as well as corporate.

An option to install GIMP.

Open Office might be nice to have also.  Maybe even an option to uninstall OOo and replace it with Libre Office.
