Title: Putty 0.66 x86 does not auto-update
Post by: rbuxcey on September 16, 2019, 02:09:05 AM
Hi there

We have Putty 0.66 deployed as a very old base installer for Putty - we have had Putty as part of our update catalog with PatchMyPC for some time, but it appears like it has never updated successfully.

It is the x86 edition, and is installed in the default location of C:\Program Files (x86)\PuTTY, with putty.exe. We are syncing both x64 and x86 updates from PatchMyPC, but neither are being applied.

Please can you advise?

You will need to get the MSI version 0.70 installed for it to detect our update is using the MSI based update and they are handled differently.

Thanks Justin - I actually tested earlier that with 0.71 the update seemed to work to 0.72, so we will use the base install for 0.72 to update everyone already on 0.66.
