We are aware of this issue, but have not yet updated the catalog because the latest binary for Google Earth was not signed by Google. We are taking an extra precaution and have reached out to Google to ensure that this latest binary is safe to package.
If you could also provide the following log files from a client, with that request, it would also be helpful: %WinDir%\CCM\Logs\PatchMyPC-ScriptRunner.log %WinDir%\CCM\Logs\PatchMyPC-SoftwareDetectionScript.log %WinDir%\CCM\Logs\AppEnforce*.log
I was thinking you could download them locally and change the download location to that local path as a workaround.
You said they worked fine in a browser, which browser were you using to download? Can you try in Internet Explorer? I expect WPP is using .NET for the downloads which uses the IE engine. It may be an issue with IE downloading the file specifically.
This is weird, I was able to test it with my own instance of SCUP and the download worked fine. I have a feeling that there is some sort of bot protection on that link that may be preventing you from downloading the software via WSUS Package Publisher. I've not used that software before, but is there a way to reference a local file?
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?
