Do you happen to have the delay option set in the Publisher under ConfigMgr Apps -> Options?


What version of Patch My PC are you using? You can find this in the "About" tab of the Patch My PC Publisher. This was a known issue in a previous release but has been fixed for some time, so I want to rule that bug out. Thanks!

We've added the ability to disable the self updater to the Zoom Outlook Plugin. You may need to go into Patch My PC and confirm the option is now available and enabled.

For sure, if we continue to see issues like this, we'll add the recommendation to our considerations page here:

I actually checked this out for someone else a week or 2 ago. This seems to be an ongoing issue with the Visual Studio Code installer, and an issue outside of Patch My PC. I would definitely turn on the auto-close or skip install if code is running for the time being. Please see the following bug reports for VSCode:

I see the issue here. We look specifically for "Teamviewer Host" and it looks like Teamviewer 13 pops in "Teamviewer 13 Host" instead, I'll look at fixing up the applicability rules to ensure we don't push out Full over Host in this situation. (we do specifically check the wow6432node).

What is the exact version of Teamviewer 13 that was being pushed out? We have a check in place for teamviewer host, but I'm wondering if something is different here. This is the applicability rule for Teamviewer 13.2.36220 in our catalog:

Code: [Select]
          <bar:RegValueExists Key="HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" Subkey="SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\TeamViewer" Type="REG_SZ" RegType32="true" />
            <bar:RegSz Comparison="EqualTo" Data="Teamviewer Host" Value="DisplayName" Key="HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" Subkey="SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\TeamViewer" RegType32="true" />
          <bar:RegSzToVersion Comparison="LessThan" Data="13.2.36220.0" Value="DisplayVersion" Key="HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" Subkey="SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\TeamViewer" RegType32="true" />
          <bar:RegSzToVersion Comparison="GreaterThanOrEqualTo" Data="" Value="DisplayVersion" Key="HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" Subkey="SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\TeamViewer" RegType32="true" />

So we search for the Teamviewer uninstall reg key, and ensure that the display name i s not "Teamviewer Host". Can you let me know what you see under that reg key? Thanks!

Could you please open a support case with us here: and send in the patchmypc.log? We'll take a deeper look at it and see if we can figure out what is going on here. Thanks!


Can you let me know exactly where you are seeing this error? In the applications themselves? In the PatchMyPC.log?

You are correct, you likely just need to pop INSTALLDIR="Custom\install\path" to the command line right-click option. After doing so, run a sync, ConfigMgr Base will automatically be updated, you may need to run a republish for the update to be regenerated:


You should be able to accomplish this using the Patch My PC publisher and specifying a custom installation command line using the right-click options. Information about those right-click options can be found here:

The applicability rules for VC++ are as follows:
SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0\VC\Runtimes\X64\BLD Exists and is <28720

Could you please check and see on a fresh install if that folder exists. I know some drivers will actually install the VC++ runtime (graphics drivers come to mind). I checked the 2004 wim for that reg value and it does not exist, so you are correct that VC++ is not installed on a completely clean image.

You'd likely want do decline any updates published by Patch My PC first, then you can remove the publishing service. Details here:
HTTPS is required for the SUP if you want ConfigMgr to manage and deploy your code-signing cert using client settings. More info can be found here:

Hi Jim,

This is not something we could easily to today based on how we package and publish the apps. Voting on the idea is definitely the way to go so we can gauge the popularity of the request and see if it is something we should consider for the future. In the meantime, Deploying to 2 collections is the way to go for now.

Patch My PC only updates the full version of Teamviewer at this time. Feel free to add Teamviewer QS to our ideas page here: The fact that this app can be run from anywhere would make it difficult to patch however.
