Messages - Omar (Patch My PC)

Thank you and sorry about this! It's fixed now
Hi Daniel,
Are these computers running Windows 8.1/8 or Windows 7? Google dropped the supported for these old OSes ever since v111, therefore you can't install or update any new version of Chrome or any Chromium browser on them, therefor we excluded them in the detection rules.
Sadly they didn't offer a portable edition for the last few versions of these apps.
This is an issue in Wise Registry Cleaner, they changed it's location in the registry, this will be fixed in the next update of Patch My PC.
This was done on purpose because of a bug in Discord, if you update it manually it won't update the version in the registry, therefor PMPC will always detect it as outdated! we are monitoring their updates and once they fix this, we will update the version in PMPC.
However, if you select Discord right now and updated it, it will update to the latest version, we update the download link but not the version number for now.

PS: I see almost the same issue with Putty in the screenshot, but that's a known issue from Putty, you already have v0.79 installed but you need to manually uninstall v0.78.
It is already up to date to 23.07 in the home updater ever since it released.
Quote from: jrp2706 on September 08, 2023, 01:51:54 AMI am a new user and am very surprised that PatchMyPC still uses Internet Explorer at all.

Surely by now you should be respecting the users browser preference or at least using Edge (& not Egde's IE emulation).

See also Wikipedia note re Windows 11 and beyond which I assume is true:

On May 19, 2021, Microsoft announced that Internet Explorer will be no longer supported on June 15, 2022[a] and as part of transition, IE mode will be available on the new Microsoft Edge which allows launch older ActiveX controls and legacy websites until at least 2029.[8] Windows 11 removed Internet Explorer, although it was disabled and some of its files are still stored in Windows' Program Files folder. Users that are trying to run iexplore.exe via Run command will be redirected to Microsoft Edge.[9] Additionally, if it is run for the first time since the release of Edge Chromium, IE11 will now open a new tab that redirects to Edge's website, with a notice that "some websites no longer support Internet Explorer". Internet Explorer is also disabled on Windows 10 Semi-Annual Channel after installing February 14, 2023 security update, and visual references of the browser will be removed on June 13, 2023.

I personally prefer the Chromium based Brave browser for its enhanced Privacy features.

I am interested in your thoughts on getting rid of IE at last.



This is an 8 years old post, this was fixed almost back then in the same year.
This means you have v0.78 and v0.79 installed at the same time, it's a known issue just in this new release, you have to manually uninstall v0.78, check the note in here:
