What Does Auto-Install Do?
« on: February 26, 2018, 07:01:24 AM »
Hi,

Just wondered, what does setting an app to Auto-Install actually do?  I had a look at the FAQ here, but I think there is a typo as the question "Adding Apps As Auto-Install?" describes the auto updating feature.

Thanks.

It sets Patch My PC to auto check the applications so it will be installed if it's not already. The information gets stored in an INI file. It can be helpful for IT Techs that want to install a base set of applications on newly images PCs.
