Title: Skipping thunderbird
Post by: offerlam on December 15, 2019, 09:41:41 AM
I'm playing around with how to skip certain software to be updated.
Im trying to skip thunderbird as a test but i can't seem to get it right.
from my understanding this needs to be done through the registry in windows:

Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Patch My PC

I have added a dword32 with data point 1 with the name of SkipMozillaThunderBird
but this doesn't work.

what am i missing?

Thanks for a awesome product!

Did you right-click the checkbox and choose the skip option?

Hi Justin,
no i didn't. I was hoping the reqhack would do the same thing?
can't it be done through the registry? or ini file instead of clicking the application?

Is the regvalue you added the same added when doing a right-click and skipping?

It may be a bug. We will need to look into this for a future update.

so we can't skip software to be installed in your enterprise product?

In the Enterprise product, you would use System Center Configuration Manager to control exactly how you want to configure your deployments.

and when you say System Center Configuration Manager are you then talking about microsoft System Center Configuration Manager? or is System Center Configuration Manager your own application?

Unfortunately, it is rather complicated to work in such a way. That is why I am not sure this works.
