Can Patch My PC keep portable apps updated?
« on: June 24, 2021, 07:40:53 AM »
hello everyone,
I have a question about portable apps, I use a lot of portable versions of apps on a network drive and I was wondering if it's possible to add a path to scan and update those apps with their new portable version.
for example crystal disk info, I also use CCleaner, but they added an auto-update so it's not a big deal.
thanks and have a great day!

Are you a bot? because that response has nothing to do with what I wrote.

I have Display Driver Uninstaller and Rufus installed, but portable versions and it downloads them. It doesn't unpack or anything, just downloads the archive for the program and drops it in c:\users\yourusername\Desktop

Can't change that path and it's up to you to extract the files where you want them.
