We publish the Microsoft Teams (x64) application with PatchMyPC Publishing Service which works fine. The installation succeeds but unfortunately it isn't actually available until the user reopens his Windows session.
I understand that the machine installation of Teams is just an installer in ProgramFiles that is triggered for each user that logs into the machine. The problem we experience is that when users install the application from Software Center they expect to have access to the application once the install completes and not have to log off/on. I assume you use the parameter OPTIONS="noAutoStart=true" ?
Is there a way to override that? Would it even work when installed as system? Would I run into trouble I if tried that?


It appears OBS Studio is available in the free catalog but I can't find it in ours which is Enterprise.

We are still using SCUP if it makes any difference.

Thank you,
Hi both x64 and x86 versions are failing with.
PublishItem: --- Digest verification failed on content for software update 'Google Chrome 72.0.3626.96 (x86) (UpdateId:'809deecf-a119-4325-aa92-2d276c4b1075' Vendor:'Patch My PC' Product:'SCUP Updates')'.
PublishItem: --- Digest verification failed on content for software update 'Google Chrome 72.0.3626.96 (x64) (UpdateId:'7cb81314-cf66-4ef0-9952-03cea8c2b250' Vendor:'Patch My PC' Product:'SCUP Updates')'.

I assume it's because 72.0.3626.109 just came out?


Starting with Notepad++ 7.5.7 x86 is no longer being updated on x64 computers.
We are seeing users that were running Notepad++ 7.5.6 x86 version get updated to Notepad++ 7.5.7 x64 which works but during the transition all plugins and cached tabs are lost...
Is this expected?

I also noticed that now the Notepad++ updates have the vendor set to PatchMyPC and product set to SCUP Updates instead of the previous Notepad++ Team vendor and Notepad++ product.
We had to add the new vendor and product into our SUP to get it into SCCM which made us waste a bit of time before figuring out where the problem was coming from. Was that change announced?

WSUS wouldn't sync yesterday so I was unable to get the patch Tuesday updates into SCCM.
I checked the log file below and found out this error about PatchMyPC.

After going through the SCCM SUP Product List I unchecked PatchMyPC and now it started syncing again.
We have been using PatchMyPC for quite some time so I'm unsure why this problem occurred yesterday...

I just deployed 7-Zip 18.01 (x64) and unfortunately I lost all file type associations. Could you make it so that it retains these settings after an upgrade?
I understand that it may be challenging considering the upgrade runs as SYSTEM while the file type association is user based...

Thank you,

Hi, would it be possible to provide updates for this application?

It's becoming more and more common in enterprises.

Thank you,
Hi, I deployed version 7.3.1 (x86) to update from version 7.2.2 but the update would fail to install unless I closed notepad++.
Would it be possible to support a /kill switch as does your Greenshot update?

Hi, this product is quite popular in development companies so it would be useful to be able to patch it through your SCUP catalog.

Considering you can extract the MSI from the installer it should be a fairly easy one to package.

Thank you
Hi, I noticed that if a computer is running a newer version of Chrome than the one deployed as a software update the "old" update will still try to install.
If it makes any difference this is happening with 46.0.2490.80 and 46.0.2490.71.

I would expect that if a software is newer than the deployed update the computer would be seen as compliant.
Thank you
