Messages - Jake Shackelford (Patch My PC)

I would wrap this into a powershell script and append it as a post-script
Our Catalog team is actively looking into this one
If you could email the issue and the following logs to [email protected] that would be incredibly helpful! Logs to collect Additionally if you could run the following Powershell script on one of the client devices experiencing issues that would be helpful. Export Script It will export a CSV file wherever it is run of the Uninstall hive registry keys.
Fantastic we will resume communication via email! :)
Would you be able to send a copy of your patchmypc.log file to [email protected]? The hash appears valid.
At this time we don't allow interactive installers. With that being said Wireshark does NOT have a command line that allows for the installation of Npcap silently as it requires a license/validation. Generally we suggest deploying Npcap separately.
The first thing I would try is to stop the Patch My PC service and restart it. If that does not allow things to work you will want to look at getting the interactive service operation enabled.
Correct when I said clicking, I meant the option itself not the application I apologize! Additionally, you can't reset some of the settings like Command Line prompt or others, however those default to blank so simply clearing them out will give you the default.

For a full reset you can move the Settings.xml file located in the install directory of the Patch My PC publisher to another location and after reopening the application you will have a fresh slate. This would reset everything however.
Simply clicking them again will uncheck them. For the most part most of the options are either enabled or not. A few do give you the option of adding additional things like files/folders or parameters.

So uncheck the ones you don't want and then you would want to republish the app/update: https://patchmypc.com/when-and-how-to-republish-third-party-updates
I would suggest adding an exclusion to that particular EXE to start. You may need to explore allowing exclusions on other folders related to content distribution within ConfigMgr but I would start solely with the ScriptRunner.exe. Depending on the security tool it can detect as a false positive just do to the nature of the exe running in the system context.
This was caused when Adobe changed the actual display name for the application, it caused detections to fail or only show as half compliant. With this in mind we adjusted the rules and added a (Rev 1) tag so that no one would have to republish the update manually and be in a broken state.
We're going to run this through some tests quick and assuming everything comes back great we'll have this change in place hopefully in the next catalog release! Thank you!
We don't have a direct way to do it in the publisher today, however if you do set them in Intune you can navigate to our Publisher and on the Intune Apps or Intune Updates Tab select Options, There will be an option to carry over Application Dependencies moving forward. 
Passing this along to the devs as a request. It also helps if you could make this request on our ideas page, found here: https://ideas.patchmypc.com/
Would you be able to grab the following logs from an affected client device and email them to [email protected]?

%WinDir%\CCM\Logs\PatchMyPC-ScriptRunner.log (If exist)
This may be found in the %ProgramData%\PatchMyPC\ if the Install was initiated by the user from Software Center.
You need to run Get-WindowsUpdateLog on Windows 8.1 and newer in PowerShell.
