VOTE: Applications you want to be added to Patch My PC?
« on: August 11, 2017, 12:34:47 PM »
The poll has been moved to: https://patchmypc.net/vote-for-new-apps


You can now vote for apps you want to be added to "Patch My PC". We will look into adding add the top ones as soon as possible. In this list, we added most of the requested apps in our forums.
If you want an app to be added, please reply in this topic.

However, There are some rules we must follow before adding any apps, the apps must be:
  • Free
  • Has a silent switch option for installation
  • Doesn't install any bloatware or any other un-needed apps
  • Has a full offline/standalone installer
  • Replaces the older version when installing the new one
  • Has a DisplayVersion number in add and remove programs
  • Popular app used widely
Any app that doesn't meet these rules will be removed from the voting list or it won't be added to the voting list if requested.
Below we mentioned the incompatible apps and why they are not compatible, the list is updated regularly.

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.

They have been added to the voting list  :) But if any of them are incompatible we will remove it from the voting list and add it to the incompatible apps list.

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.

My vote is for the DivX suite, especially  DivX Converter and DivX Player. DivX meets your requirements.

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