I found the problem: PMPC has been installing it in \AppData\Local\Temp instead of \Program Files. How does one fix that?
Even with TeamViewer process stopped, I'm finding Patch doesn't actually install the update, although it says that it has.
Autoruns shows TeamViewer_Service.exe sets itself to start.
That's what I thought, but looking at my startup list (Task Mgr), TeamViewer and Java seem the only ones PMPC deals with. Right now TeamViewer is not there, even though I didn't do anything to remove it, but it is checked in Autoruns. Will see. In any case, thanks for your help.
Attached is the log for the past two days. Don't see any failures in the 15.20.6 installs. Further back in the past week, on 8-24 & 8-25 15.20.4 showed as installed successfully, and on 8-27 and 8-28 15.20.5 likewise. This seems like something that should be handled in either TeamViewer's install program or PMPC, or both. Being prompted to close a running process or being asked if it's ok to close it is common. In this case neither is happening and PMPC is giving a false result. If PMPC has an auto close, then presumably it should also trigger a request to close. I don't think many users remember every process they have in startup or can be expected to.
You're correct, TeamViewer is running in the background on start up. I wasn't aware of that and will correct it. However, that begs the question: why day after day does PMPC show the install of 15.21.5 as successful when it's not? I've attached some screenshots from what happens after rebooting and running PMPC for TeamViewer. They show the results, along with shots of RevoPro and the executable's Properties' details. Seems like a bug.
For the past week, Patch has shown TeamViewer 15.20.6 (x64) every day, even though it's installed -- a few times now! -- and a search finds no other version is anywhere else on my main drive. I thought maybe TeamViewer was having problems that needed repeated updates, but checking now that's not the case.
OpenVPN 2.5.2-I601 amd64 -- Showed yesterday and today. I've had this installed for some time & can't find any older copies

Follow up: PMPC is right now showing Vivaldi 3.7.2218.52 needs installing, but my currently installed version is Vivaldi  -  3.7.2218.55.
For the past five days or so, Vivaldi browser has shown in PMP as needing an update, and it seems to do complete it. But there it is again the next day. So after tonight's try, I opened Vivaldi and checked for updates. It said I needed the one that PMPC says had been installed. What I noticed tonight, though, was the message with the install: "Install complete Exit Code 7" (it must have been there before). Screenshot attached.
Checking Revo Pro, you're correct. Thanks for the warning, as I know well the pitfalls of uninstalling an earlier version of Opera.

Follow up: Deleting the main registry entry (folder) for the particular build of Opera 69 in question seems to have solved it. I understand that's not something you would normally suggest here for the average user, though.
In updating Opera browser, I seemed to have bypassed a build of version 69 and now have 70.0.3728.71. Perhaps because that version 69 is not on my computer, Patch keeps coming up with it on the scans. However, it doesn't recognize it in the count of programs needing update, so isn't doing anything with it. It's just there every time in red.
You're right. The catch is that Patch doesn't update Ccleaner here. Hasn't for quite some time. Have to do it from Ccleaner site.
Just recently, I've been twice prompted to update Opera 64 64-bit versions after I had already updated it to the current one via Opera's site. And Patch is showing Ccleaner as v. 5.62 and needing 5.63, when Ccleaner itself is showing 5.63. A screenshot of Patch vs. Ccleaner is attached.
