UPDATE: As it turns out, the reason Patch My PC no longer recognizes Chrome as an installed app is because my Windows 7 Home (64bit) laptop no longer recognizes it, i.e., it’s no longer listed under “Control Panel > Programs and Features” and consequently my 3rd party uninstallers also no longer recognize it – IObit & Revo Pro.

I’ve tried a forced uninstall using both uninstallers and deleting all leftover registry keys & folders and manually deleting both Google > Chrome folders:

C:\Users\<YourUserName>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome
C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome

And on reinstall using ChromeStandaloneSetup64.exe Chrome reinstalls nicely and everything syncs via my account login (and it seems to run faster), but it’s still excluded from list of apps under “Control Panel > Programs and Features.”

It’s worth noting that Patch My PC does recognize it on my Windows 10 Home (64bit) desktop as do my 3rd party utility apps and as expected it’s also listed under “Control Panel > Programs and Features.”

CONCLUSION: This is a either something unique to my Windows 7 laptop or Chrome no longer plays nice with Windows 7 Home (64bit) OS, which is something I’ve seen with other apps, e.g., Heimdal Agent (another app update patch installer). For many years I used Secunia PSI, until they released a completely new version of the app which performed miserably, which lead me to Patch My PC but I digress…

Ultimately, I will be converting this laptop to Windows 10 sometime around November 2019 in advance of Microsoft’s termination of security updates. Hopefully, that will resolve the issue.

General Questions / how do "NOT" update a program
« Last post by harris128 on Today at 12:13:25 PM »
I have Aa program for work in my list to update, but my work does not allow updating the program unless I'm logged in to the VPN at work.  My question is, is there a way yo deselect the pro gram from the list, so it is not updated?

Thanks for a great utility,

Digest Mismatch Due To Download URL Being Filtered by Firewall or Web Filter

If you received an error message in the PatchMyPC.log similar to the one shown below when publishing a third-party update this article should help.

Digest of the downloaded update doesn't match the digest from the catalog: Hash from catalog [0Io0A82tYc06ybySLZ1osB5VYzY=] doesn’t match downloaded update hash of [YQMfSKsyclBqVjGnvRdBuoCCcvY=]
This error appears to be a known error. Please see our KB article https://patchmypc.com/digest-mismatch-download-filtered for the resolution.

Why the Hash Check?

Whenever we download an update file from a vendor's website to publish to WSUS/SCCM, we validate the hash of the current binary downloaded matches the original hash within the catalog metadata. This check ensures that if a binary is compromised or changed on vendors website, we will not publish the software update. We have a deep dive into our security validation process here.

Resolution to this Specific Hash Check Failure

If you received the error message above that links our to this article, that means the hash check failed, and the downloaded file size was less than 100 kb. When the downloaded file is less than 100 kb in size, this almost always correlates to a web filter or firewall blocking the download from the server that is running our publishing service. Step 1 - Open the PatchMyPC.log from the publishing service.

Step 2 - Copy the download URL from the PatchMyPC.log for any updates receiving this hash error.

Step 3 - Paste the download URL into a web browser on the same server running the publishing service and check if you receive an error that a web filter is blocking the download.

Step 4 - You will need to get exceptions created for any downloads receiving this hash error for "digest mismatch download filtered".

The problem is not in the update process itself, but in the release-version. Sometimes they release a version which does not work properly. Therefore we would like to have the deployment controlled via WSUS. I do have an older version available, but I don't think that is relevant in this case.

But to be clear.. the version which is now available on the Citrix website works fine.

Hey,

In order for us to create an update for the latest version of Citrix Files 4.5.30.0, we would need to install an older version of the product in our lab to test the upgrade and detection logic for the new/current version of the product (4.5.30.0). I don't see an option on the Citrix Website to download previous versions. If we don't get a previous build, we will need to wait until the next version is released then we can use version 4.5.30.0 to test the upgrade to the new version.

I'm still seeing issues this morning with all the updates that are trying to sync. Is there something I need to do to for an update?
