Messages - Justin Chalfant (Patch My PC)

Cool, It was actually a issue with the new icon not being comparable with XP.T
Can you download http://patchmypc.net/download.html and see if it runs ok?
Why wait till March? I will most likely be releasing a incremental update in the next few days to fix some small bugs in 2.0.6. This is what I'm planning on doing to give users a option to keep Java 6 installed.

  The issue is NOT with Java 7. It's with the program's insistence on uninstalling Java 6, which SOME of the web-pages I visit require. The XML file will allow me to prevent Java 7 updates, but that is the last thing I want from a security standpoint of view. Having said that, Java 6 isn't going to get ITS remaining holes sealed any time soon. But PMP's insistence on deleting this separate program, for all intents and purposes, is making me put the program into the drawer. I have left myself a note to look at it again come spring. I like an AWFUL lot of what you are doing. And just running my jre-6u## installer after every use isn't arduous. Just off-putting.

  I hope when I revisit the program, one of two things will have ocurred. Either you treat Java 6 separately, or the idiots still depending on Java 6 (or more technically 1.6), get their butts in gear and update.

  See ya in March. GM
I fixed the issue with the option software. I will most likely release a incremental update of Patch My PC before the scheduled January 1st update. Do you want me to let you know when that's available on here?

Yeah, I had somebody mention this before apparently the Firefox installer doesn't recognize if it was installed the a different drive. I will see if there's a fix for this. I did notice the optional software issue where if you check optional software and run updates then uncheck it and run updates it still applies the same update your had checked. I will fix this in the next version thanks for pointing this out  :)!
What version of Patch My PC are you using?
It's working fine for me can you manually download and install winrar?
Hey, There is a option in the config.xml document to ignore Java 7 updates this should resolve your issue. Here is the post regarding the config.xml http://patchmypc.net/forum/index.php?topic=16.0 let me know if this resolves your issue.

Patch My PC uses the default silent installation method for software. You will have to manually change these settings if they are overwritten. However Java should only show in system tray when in use.



  I see potential in PatchMyPC. If nothing else, I will worry less about my father's computer and his ability to update the dreaded Adobe products. But I do have one issue that might be my fault. Everytime he runs the program, it uninstalls Java v6 and updates Java v7 when he pushes the button. Unfortunately, he has an application that requires Java 6 (or more techinically 1.6.x). Furthermore, some of his Firefox bookmarklets seem to have issues with Java 7 and it would be nice to keep Java 6 around. He knows to run the icon on the desktop for the Java 6 installer and just affirm each step. But there will be a day he forgets and a week or three later, there'll be an issue and I won't start the solution process at java. IS there a setting that will let me tell PatchMyPC to leave earlier versions of Java alone?

  Thanks for taking the time to make conversations with Pops less stressful.  GM
Can you send a screen shot of the problem?
If the versions aren't showing up that means Patch My PC isn't loading the definitions file from http://patchmypc.net/documents/definitions.xml. See if you can access this file in your browser.

What version are you using? Can you access the following document in your web browser http://patchmypc.net/documents/definitions.xml ? Patch My PC loads the definitions from this XML document. I have seen some virus venders block access to XML documents.

You are connected to the internet right?
Is this the machine that emisoft was installed on and flagging it?
Try re-downloading Patch My PC. The versions for the software ex. Flash, Java right?
I left VLC player out of the outdated check because it usually required user interaction when installing.

When patch my pc is loaded if will give you a list of outdated sw installed including optional sw. So if the latest version of thunderbird is 6.0.2 and you have 6.0.1 installed it will show up and you will know you should check thunderbird.

I'm not seeing this in ver 2.0.3. I just tested, and an outdated VLC did not show up as needing updated. I will be happy to test further if needed.
