Messages - Andrew Jimenez (Patch My PC)

We shipped the latest version available in today's catalog and updated our tooling to catch these updates as they are released. Thanks for bringing it to our attention!
Hi Steven,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention, we'll get this updated in our next catalog release.
Hi Dom,

Let's open a full case on this. Can you submit a case here: https://patchmypc.com/technical-support
and include the patchmypc.log, which should be in the installation folder of the Patch My PC Publisher?
That is interesting. There should only be 1 instance of the updates unless the updates were republished somehow, as the updates will have the same updateID. Have any of the duplicated records been republished in Patch My PC or SCUP?

We do have a way to clear out the apps created by Patch My PC, it is definitely easier to start fresh sometimes!

If you open the Patch My PC Publisher, Navigate to the "ConfigMgr Apps" tab, hit "Options", you'll see a button for "Run ConfigMgr Application Manager", in that tool you can mass delete deployments as well as the apps themselves. If you do have deployments on the apps, I do recommend deleting the assignments first, then deleting the apps (sometimes software center gets confused when the app is deleted and the deployment isn't deleted first).
This addition was pushed in today's catalog update. The rules should be updated in-place if using the Patch My PC Publisher.

We do not at this time, but should with the next catalog release. Thanks for bringing this to our attention!
You can definitely add in a try catch, the biggest thing is to ensure is that it returns a 0 if it is successful, or the entire installation might return as failed.
I would use a post install script. You can easily turn a registry file into a PowerShell script using this awesome tool: https://reg2ps.azurewebsites.net/
We'll have this in the catalog later this week (Week of 15/11/2021).
You are correct, just make sure to set that Assignment on "All Products" first, as it will wipe all assignments below it, and replace them with the assignments made at the "All Products" level.

So setting an assignment on "All products" will overwrite assignment settings below. If you want to set a default assignment for everything, then adjust settings for specific applications/updates, you would want to set the default assignment first, then go and make customizations on specific applications afterwards.
You should not need the console for that specific task, and the feature is in production.
Confirmed. I'll update the website shortly with this information. I have also added the appropriate processes to the application so that you can use our "Manage Conflicting Processes" feature to close the app prior to update. https://patchmypc.com/manage-conflicting-processes-when-updating-third-party-applications
Hi Aleksander,

I believe this application needs to be closed before installation will complete successfully. I am still testing this and will confirm and add it to our known issues page once I confirm the issue. https://patchmypc.com/known-issues-and-considerations-when-using-patch-my-pc#topic2
