Have set up a scheduled task with /silent /auto and noticed that iTunesX64Setup_188.8.131.52.exe update was just hung doing nothing.
Started at 10:30pm, so decided to see what the process was doing.
Looks like it was waiting for user input (so background silent and auto update doesn't appear to work)
Now I am new to using PatchMyPC with a task set to silent auto so maybe this is known for this installer?
If some installers don't work with /auto /silent should they be skipped or the users prompted?
anyway wanted to pass this along just in case it was useful to address any issues.
Here is log and process info at 10:53pm
Had time to look into this more and when I attempted to run "manually" via the GUI
I found that the installer is likely corrupted and why the install process via /auto /silent install was waiting for user input.
And to save you some time:
We are sorry about all this! it was a problem with uploading the installer, it's fixed now if you try again.
But first make sure to remove that corrupted installer from cache folder.
yup works now - just tried it - THANKS!
