When I try PatchmyPC on a Vista machine it crashes. Screen shots and text attached.

I think you are correct it was a Chrome problem. I used Windows Install Cleanup program and removed the old version.

I may have found the problem. The current installed version is 18.0.912.75 but PatchMyPC reports 14.3.17315. Could be it will not install the same version.

Every time I try to update Chrome I get the following error(see screenshot). I am running as an administrator.

No proxy server, just my home network. In that it gets a list of Windows updates I can not see it as a connection problem. The fact a network IP is not shown is strange as it had a 192.168.2.x address with IPconfig. I do not know how your program gets the IP but it might be a place to look. Undoubtedly I will get another problem case at some point.

I no longer have the  computer as the owner has taken it. The first time this happened the machine was loaded with spyware but this one was a new install.

If I get another one is there anyway to add some debugging to the code so we know what is happening?

This was a fresh install of Win XP pro on a Sempron 2600+ with 1024 MB memory. All updates installed. Net Framework 3.5 said it installed. I have tried the cleanup tool and reinstalled it but no improvement.

Nothing I tried loaded version numbers. Disabled Avast and Windows Firewall. The program finds the Windows updates so it must have Internet access even if the IP address does not show.

The beta version has exactly the same problems and gives exactly the same error when I Run Common ....

Safe mode with networking does not change anything.

The thing that is so strange is when I check VLCPlayer and click Run, PatchMyPC says it has downloaded VLCPlayer in a second or two, which is impossible, and then runs overnight installing. No program is installed.

Should not putting the definitions.xml in the same folder bypass any connection problems?
Disabled Avast but have used it on all the other computers, still nothing. Disabled Windows firewall and set it as exception nothing.

Tried clicking on Run Common and Checked Optional Updates and get the screen shot attached. When I click on details get the following. Hopefully it means something to you.
See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging

For example:

    <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

I have another one with no version numbers. I tried right-clicking and installing a number of programs . The programs download immediately and then forever install it.

Internet works as I installed Netframework 3.5 from the net.

Here is the screenshot. Anything else I can send you?

Tried it with definitions.xml in the same folder, still no versions, instant download and installs forever.
Just got it from Majorgeeks and it works fine.

On three different Win XP machines I am getting the program crashing. Screen shot is attached. No problem with version 2.05

Screen shot is on message above, reply #2.
I can access the xml document. Just noticed the IP is missing as well if that is of any use.
Just hit another computer with the same problem.  Reinstalled .net 3.5 after using the cleanup tool. Thought it might be a permission problem in the registry so reset them all to default. Ran Sfc through. Scanned with Avast, Malwarebytes,Spybot, Superantispyware, Emsisoft and Dr Web. Found nothing.

Tried right-click and trying to update Adobe Flash player. PatchMyPC reports it downloaded the file. An hour later it was still installing it!

Any ideas for what to try next?
Just clicked on logs and got the following. I tried to get screen shots but print screen is rather limited. If necessary I will try to find something which shows the entire message.
