Hi Justin:

It's been some time since I posted something on this forum. 

IMHO, one important bit of information appears to be missing when PMPC creates a report.  That bit of information is the date.  Other important information such as PMPC version number, time, etc. is included in the report summary but the date is missing.

FYI, I have installed your software on ALL PCs I currently service for my customers.   Your software is evolving very nicely and you are very responsive to your audience.  Please keep up the good work.

Best regards,

Dan Silva

Hi Justin:

I selected the 'install optional updates by default' option in the GUI of PMPC V2.0.7.3 test run on my wife's Windows XP Home_SP3 PC.  I then reran PMPC with the /s switch at the command prompt. NONE of the outdated optional software (reported on the previous GUI run) was updated.

My XP Pro_SP3 home system is already up to date so testing it there would be pointless.  My laptop is also running XP Pro_SP3 and I know I have optional software which is out of date.  I will do test runs on my laptop this evening and report my findings on a later post on this same topic.

Keep up the good work.

Best regards.

Dan

General Questions (Free Home Updater) / Enhanced Command Line Options

Hi:

Good work on creating such an application.  For several customers of mine who do not like to perform PM on their PCs, I created a batch file which can perform many of those tasks with one click or automatically when scheduled with Windows Task scheduler.

I tried running your latest version of PMPC on my Windows XP Pro_SP3 system using the Windows interface and it performed very well.  However, it looks as if another update to your software may be in order soon as it reported Mozilla Thunderbird as being out of date when I had version 9.01 installed and it recommended version 8.0 (no biggie here).

When I tried to run your software from the command prompt using the /s switch, I noticed that the process would NOT unload once it had 'done its thing' (invoke Windows task manager) and my batch file would HANG.  Is there a way to modify your code so that the process ends once it has finished its task? 

Another thing which would be nice would be some sort of way to configure your program so that it can be more customized when being run from the command prompt.

Below is the small batch file I created to test out the command line switches of PMPC:
.............................................................
@echo off
cd C:\progra~1\patchm~1
rem d:
rem cd d:\progra~1\patchm~1
echo Starting Patch My PC...
call PatchMyPC.exe /s
exit
...........................................................
FYI, the result is the same if I remove the 'call command' from the file as well as the 'exit' command.  I use a similar type batch file to invoke CCLeaner and when invoked by the command line, CCleaner retains the settings I made in the Windows interface (I believe this is done by an '.ini file'.  Below is an example of the CCleaner my batch file:
.........................................
@echo off
cd C:\progra~1\ccleaner
rem d:
rem cd d:\progra~1\ccleaner
echo Starting CCleaner...
call ccleaner.exe /auto
.......................................

Thanks in advance for your help

Dan
