Hi Justin,

I was hoping to copy out local config prior to our Java8 upgrade however I've noticed the Pre-Update script is also Post-Uninstall - this removes the files before I have the chance to dump them out:

Running script: PatchMyPC-Remove-JRE8-32bit-Only.ps1 ScriptRunner 27/06/2019 11:49:43 AM 1 (0x0001)
Running Powershell Script. ScriptRunner 27/06/2019 11:49:43 AM 1 (0x0001)
Exiting With code: 0 ScriptRunner 27/06/2019 11:49:58 AM 1 (0x0001)
Running script: Pre-Update.ps1 ScriptRunner 27/06/2019 11:49:58 AM 1 (0x0001)

This was my workaround in lieu of not having the ability to incorporate additional source files into the update as per this post: https://patchmypc.com/forum/index.php?topic=3034.msg8073#msg8073. I'm wondering if you have any suggestions on how to best approach this, or would I need to raise a feature request to add Pre-Uninstall / Post-Uninstall actions?

I fat-fingered an update script and had to republish content for the second time in one day. The first time worked flawlessly, appending the date onto the update name eg "Oracle Java 8 Update 211 8.0.2010.9 (x64) - (June 25, 2019)" and automatically superseding the previous update. However the second republish used the exact same name and did not supersede the previous one. What would you recommend at this stage?
Hi there,

We've started to deploy Java 8 updates in our environment and run into a pickle with custom files....

Our initial deployment includes copying config files into "C:\Windows\sun\Java\Deployment" eg deployment.config, exception.sites etc. however these are ripped out during the upgrade. Unless I'm missing something, I was thinking a "Copy custom source files..." option could exist within pre/post scripts which can be referenced by the scripts. I see there is an option to "Add MST transformation file" available to some applications, not for Java 8 unfortunately given its not an MSI installer.

We've obviously other tools at our disposal to do this, CI's, gpos etc but was hoping for a one-stop-shop solution.

Hi there,

During our security audits we've found vulnerabilities in stunnel: https://www.stunnel.org/vulns.html

The application appears to be a free download: https://www.stunnel.org/downloads.html

We've discovered this installed on around 10 devices. Be great if this could be incorporated into the catalog.

We have a bunch of old Citrix servers running Server 2008R2x64 that have WinZip 17.0 installed along with the Winzip Command but these are not being detected to upgrade to the latest release. Other updates, Chrome, Flash Player are coming through fine...

C:\Program Files\WinZip\WINZIP64.EXE (File ver: 28.0.10381.0, Product ver: 17.0 (10381)

I'm trying to switch a few updates from "metadata only" to "full content" after they've already been published.  Apologies in advance, I'm sure I've seen this posted somewhere but for the life of me cannot find any information on it  :o

I appreciate I could wait for the next release of the update(s) but who knows when that could be. I've tried the following method and had mixed results:

- deleted the update using the Modify Published Updates Wizard (Advanced tab)
- run a full SCCM Software Updates sync, once complete, confirm update(s) expired
- start a sync from PatchMyPC Publisher # this will trigger sccm software updates sync
- once complete, confirm update(s) published with full content

I'm obviously missing something as the updates return as metadata only  :(
Hi there. We're currently on the trial version of the product and we're wondering if it's possible to use the option to "Connect to your CM database to scan installed applications that are also supported in our catalog" but to compare against the full catalog? Management wants to see the value-add of the spend. If not, would purchasing a very small number of licenses be a valid alternative? Thanks in advance.
Hi there, this should be a simple one to add.. I was wanting to add a schedule for the last Sunday but noticed the drop down only covered 1st through 4th. Any chance we could get that added at some point?
This should probably go into a new/modified category Request New Features or Software | Microsoft SCCM (Enterprises/Paid)...

This is minor but figured it would be useful to have a tab in the GUI with the current product version, last self-update date/time and embed the release notes. The latter could be useful to ensure we're all taking advantage of the latest improvements and aware of any fixes #smallthings
