Messages - Justin Chalfant (Patch My PC)

We are aware of an issue where the home edition may not create a restore point.
It depends on how you configure the option "If the timeout expired and no action is taken". This should help https://patchmypc.com/manage-conflicting-processes-when-updating-third-party-applications#topic2

My client has an interesting question: if we allow x number of deferrals which are limited to a 5 minute display and return when the app eval cycle re-runs what if the end user missed them all ?   That may sound unlikely but I guess it's in the realm of possibility and that runs the risk of having , at best, an annoyed end user.  I know we can make that indefinite but many end users will see that as something to just ignore.

I was considering maintenance windows to make this more predictable but have i missed a more creative solution ?

Does this repro on every load?
When did you enable the delete shortcut option? We have the correct file name:

<ShortcutFileName>VLC media player</ShortcutFileName>

If you enable it after the update was published, it may not apply until the next update is released for VLC to remove shortcuts.
Can you open a case here: https://patchmypc.com/technical-support and attach the logs for updates not publishing? We will need logs to help more on this one.
Is this shortcut on the public desktop? Can you let us know what the shortcut filename is?
The requirements will only set on new applications or when an update is released for an application. This setting will not revise existing applications already created at the latest version on sync.

Hi - I have a few apps that I would like to set to only run on workstation OS.  In PMPC, I select to only allow on workstations; when I run a sync, the app doesn't appear at all in the summary email, and when I check the application's Requirements tab in deployment type, there are no entries.  Should I see something in there, or does the PMPC installer determine OS type?

exclusively to 3rd party updates pretty much all reporting is marking as "non-compliant" with most machines reporting "not installed" for only about 5 out of the 11.

Is this an individual update(s) showing not compliant or an entire software update group? Can you review the applicability on an update against a https://patchmypc.com/how-to-view-applicability-rules-and-troubleshoot-detection-states-for-third-party-updates

Sorry for the delay, this is because you are trying to publish an outdated version of these apps, please let me know if this helps https://patchmypc.com/digest-verification-failed-on-content-for-software-update

Any update on this issue?
The question is how does the silent task elevate privileges without any user interaction.

It would not unless the scheduled task is running as SYSTEM or if your run as a user and the user is an admin, and the option to run with the highest privileges is set.
You can control that in the scheduled task. There is an option to run with the highest privileges.
UAC is required due to the nature of what we do (install apps).
