Title: VLC not getting detected
Post by: Kormalek on May 13, 2020, 09:08:59 AM
I installed PatchMyPC as a test to see how it works. While it generally works, I have a weird issue I've not been able to debug.

I have a PC where VLC x64 is installed on (as well as Firefox, Foxit and 7zip)

But, in the Software Updates list, the VLC install doesn't show up as required. The update is also not pushed out to the

The other applications are working correctly.

The installer I used was the normal vlc-3.0.5-win64.msi from I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling VLC.

How should I continue debugging this? Is there a way to look up the detection rules that PatchMyPC uses to detect applications somewhere, like in a text file or SQL table?

We have the same problem.
Will there be a MSI version update of VLC media player published?
