Hi all, I see here on your site https://patchmypc.com/wsus-signing-certificate-options-for-third-party-updates-in-configuration-manager that this is a feature supported. We've recently just rebuilt our WSUS and for reasons specific to our environment I've moved WSUS/SUP to a dedicated server and it is no longer co-located on our Primary Site Server.

From what I can tell this is not an issue but am wanting to know if there is anything special that I need to do with in the PatchMyPC application?  Currently the application is running on our primary site server and not the WSUS/SUP role server. Also we are not configured for WSUS SSL yet but plan to be soon.


Hi all, I had to rebuild our SCCM/WSUS implementation this weekend and decided at the time to part ways with the original SUSDB. I marked all subscribed applications in the PatchMyPCConsole to be republished on the next sync and let it run it's course. Things seem to be working fine however, exclusively to 3rd party updates pretty much all reporting is marking as "non-compliant" with most machines reporting "not installed" for only about 5 out of the 11. The other applications marking as installed.  We have a new MS Update deployment as well that is running and reporting back more comforting and believable data so I know our WSUS is working.

Looking at the Updateshandler.log, CAS.log, and the accompanied PatchMyPC logs that are created for each application that is upgraded I  was not seeing the content's GUIDS being downloaded in the CAS/UpdatesHandler.log and furthermore I am not seeing a log file for any of the applications that are listed as "non-compliant"

Wsyncmgr.log and the patchmypc.log located on the primary site server don't appear to show any issues. Looking at the content of the applications in the SUG that are not installing shows that they are downloaded and deployed. I've looked at everywhere I could think albeit my mind is a bit frazzled from the weekend. Please let me know if you need any logs or if you have any suggestions. I have seen 2 other posts regarding this but neither seemed fully applicable to my situation.

HI all, were not seeing Oracle java, specifically Java 7 and 8 in our ADR previews as well as Wireshark. When looking at the deployment package we use for PatchMyPc i am not seeing it in their either. When I search our software updates within SCCM I am seeing updates for Oracle Java 7 and 8 and Wireshark from April of 2020 but that is it.

Are these not being published due to possible agreements/terms of the install or is there something else I should be looking for.

Additionally in our ADR previews were seeing Oracle java

Hi all, my org has been using PatchMyPC since May and it has been performing really well. However this month I noticed an oddity. Our 3rd party application deployments are appearing to install most but not all updates thus causing our deployment compliancy data to report that non are compliant but are "in Progress" when looking at the data for each endpoint they all collectively seem to be stuck with Webex Teams Version 3.0.16605.0. When looking at one of the machines I see that the application is showing as available in software center and when attempting to install it just sits at Downloading.

I've made sure the application is downloaded to the deployment package. I've also gone in to the PatchMyPc configurator and set the webex teams installer to republish at next sync and forced a manual sync. I am testing to see if this has an impact.

Looking at the UpdatesDeployment.log I see that the download has started but nothing seems to happen.  My work machine that is in the same testing deployment got all the updates but about 95% of all other workstations seem to have this issue.

Hi All,  Our weekly ADR for all third-party patching ran over the weekend. In the deployment among other apps was a Node.JS update and it looks to have broken parts of Production. My question here is in regards to roll back. I updated the deployment rule to exclude Node.JS in SUG creation. However the Node.JS update kept re-installing itself after we would revert it. I relaized that the node.JS updates still had membership to the SUGs generated by the ADR. I've edited the membership for all Node.JS updates from PatchMyPC and removed  membership  by right clicking on the software>edit membership>un-checked the SUGS that they were apart of.

Is this sufficient enough to stop the updates from installing again on the systems or is there more that I should be doing to stop the node.js updates from installing again.


First and foremost I want to say thanks to Justin and Wes. I have received great support from both of them last week and they were quick and very knowledgeable.

I am taking over my companies 3rd party patch management as we are moving away from a vendor and handling it in house. My company has purchased PatchMyPC and has mostly set it up.

I've re-ran the publisher tool as I went through the documentation on setting  it up just so I can get the hang of it. I've had the publisher service connect and view our sites database and have selected all applications we are currently using and set up the custom options for each/all applications we are wanting PatchMyPC to update for us. I then ran the publisher sync service.

I've created a device collection within SCCM and have placed 2 PC's in their to test with. Both are running outdated versions of Firefox, and Chrome that were installed manually.

I then created an ADR and point it to the test collection I created earlier. I specific the ADR to pull any and all updates from the Vendor" PatchMyPC" and then tell it there is no deployment package since these updates are stored within WSUS.  (Not sure if these is the right way to do this) and the proceed to finish building out the ADR.

I've made sure that the client settings are configured to allow third party software updates as well as made sure that the SUP is configured to allow 3rd party updates. I have unsubscribed from the PatchMyPC Third Party Software Catalog. I've synchronized the software update catalog, and ran all site actions under the configmgr client as well as cleared the cache and I am still not seeing any of the updates show up in software center.

Any insite as to what I am missing would be greatly appreciated.

HI all, I am taking over a PatchMyPC implementation with our SCCM 1806 environment. Going through the tutorials it looks like it was already configured mostly correct. I am more or less just needing to build out the Device collections, Sugs, and the ADR's. However, one thing the that is stopping me is that even though we are using the publishing service  the updates are showing as meta data only even they the publisher is configured to download meta and full content.

Seeing no errors in the wsyncmgr.log or the patchmypc.log. Additionally 3rd party updates have been enabled on the SUP and the patch my pc product has been enabled.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated it.
