There's a bug with the poll where you can vote twice. Once when signed out and once while signed in.

Here's my software not yet supported by Patch My PC.  Apologies, I'm not exactly equipped to perform your pre-qualification checks at the moment.  I'm sure some of these have been excluded before, but I didn't see them in the incompatibilities list.  AFAIK these are "the" popular solutions for particular technical requirements.

Firefox ESR should be included in the list for install / patching especially based on some recent changes in Firefox where Java and other plugins are no longer supported. Some of us in business environments have had to switch to ESR to maintain support until those legacy apps are retired.

Rainmeter, WinPcap & Cygwin has been removed  from the poll  and moved to incompatible apps list because there are no silent switches for them.

Unfortunately Spotify has been moved from the poll to the incompatible apps list because it requires a non-admin user to install + problems with versions number.
Also Deluge has been moved to the incompatible apps list because there are no version to detect!
