PuTTY Update Failing Because Update Was Previously Published w/ Full Content

Started getting this issue with latest PuTTY update (0.80):

QuoteUnable to add additional files(s) for PuTTY 0.80 (x64) because the update was previously published with full-content. Republish the update using https://patchmypc.com/when-and-how-to-republish-third-party-updates for new changes to take effect.

I have tried unselecting the x64 and x86 updates, re-selecting them and re-publishing, and I get the same error.

I've also followed the steps at the URL provided in the error message, but there's not much I can change in the update. Since it's using an MSI, it appears to need the script runner to run pre-install scripts.

Any suggestions, as I keep getting the error every auto re-sync?

Hello Fau5tarp
  You dont have to unselect, right click the version of putty in the publisher and 3rd from the bottom is "republish during next sync schedule" then manually sync your publisher. Make sure to check to see if you SUP is done syncing, it goes to WSUS first and then to CM. You can also see if the "Republished" update is showing in WSUS by looking at the published Updates wizard: https://patchmypc.com/modify-published-third-party-updates-wizard.  If you continue to have issue then please submit a support case from https://patchmypc.com/technical-support and include the following logs: https://patchmypc.com/collecting-log-files-for-patch-my-pc-support#publishing-service-logs.  You can also gather them by clicking on the collect logs button in the bottom right of the publisher.
