Update: The latest PatchMyPC version has fixed this GUI issue. We are now able to select UNC paths via the GUI. Thanks to the team for the quick update!!!
Thanks for pointing the feature request out. I have found out that all the settings are written in the Settings.XML in the PatchMyPC folder. I gave it a try and manually added a folder UNC path in the XML and that setting is actually reflected back in the GUI - see screenshot attached. However I have not yet tested out, if editing the Settings.XML file directly is supported and if the folder inclusion does work by doing it that way.
I have tested the function to add files and folders. It works great for files, BUT for folders we have discovered that it is not possible to select a folder on a UNC path. The "Browser For Folder" GUI allows only to select local folders (no chance to input a UNC path). How can we add folders that are on the network then? This is highly important, as we have some larger scripts that rely on modules and several other files that we need to retain during patching.
Seems like a wrong GUI design decision to me, is it?
This looks great, I haven't seen these options before. Thanks for pointing that out. We will try that and provide feedback ...
Hi folks.

before starting my question, I'd like to say thank you to the PatchMyPC team for the great work and constant improvements you have built into the product. It's an outstanding product that fills a huge gap at a more than resaonable price. 

I am currently evaluating Patch My PC with one of our customers and they quicly fell in love with the pre/post script feature that allows to customize the behavior of setups both for Patches and also applications.

We currently have a lot of Powershell scripts for our application setups, to customize lots of stuff. These Powershell scripts use some Powershell modules, external XML files and many are based on the well known Powershell App Deployment Toolkit that requires a certain file structure in the script directory in order to work.

With PatchMyPC we are planning to entirely skip application packaging for all the products in the PatchMyPC catalog and move our current scripting logic completely to the pre/post script feature of PatchMyPC.

My question is: Is the Pre/post scripting feature of PatchMyPC capable of running more complex scripts that rely on external files or Powershell modules that reside in the script directory? Can we simply copy an existing script along with its modules and maybe subfolders and everything is run by PatchMyPC?

I have not been able to test it out myself yet. Hopefully someone here could provide an answer if this if possible or (if not) is planned to be included soon!

Thank you very much in advance
