Weird..

I've got the following batch script:

@echo off
c:\windows\regedit -S C:\BIZ\patchmyPC.reg
C:\BIZ\PatchMyPC.exe /s

The reg inport is just the ignored apps..  that works fine... but running it with /s puts patchmypc into the task bar,  but doesn't seem to update anything so I swapped to a hidden window with /auto which works, but only for the common apps that I can see.   Clients are win7 64bit. Tested with all apps closed so it wasn't waiting for anything.  when you go into the taskbar icon and open it it still shows all the apps that need updating.

any idea what could be causing /s not to work in win7?

It's now 4/25/2016 - and the exact same issue with /s.. it opens the program in the notification area (meaning minimized) yet does not automatically install patches as it should. It also doesn't automatically close the application once updates happen, as it should via a command line script.

Any ideas here?

Hey in version 2.1.1 and above there will be a switch too apply all common updates (Even if their not installed) if a common update is marked as skipped the update won't be installed though.

The command line argument will be /applyallcommon

Hello

I cannot get this  /applyallcommon switch to work  :( Is it still supported ?

Regards

No, this was in the past when we had a "Common" group for the most common apps and "Others" group for the rest of the apps, It's not supported anymore.

Please see: https://patchmypc.net/faq-free-updater for the most up to date information.

The /auto switch - This switch will allow the current logged user to see the Patch My PC GUI. The update process will started automatically. If browsers are open Patch My PC will notify user in the log textbox browsers need to be closed before updates can continue.   

The /s switch - This switch will run Patch My PC in hidden in the background. If browsers are open it will recheck every ten seconds until browsers are closed then continue with the install.

Examples:

PatchMyPC.exe /s (Will run any needed updates automatically with no graphical interface).
PatchMyPC.exe /auto (Will run any needed updates automatically with a graphical interface).


thank you very much your information was helpful for me may God you have a lot of information i checked your link which is mention above, awesome information

+1 to the question above.

I want to know if the PatchmyPC.ini file can exclude a software(for eg teamviewer ) from getting updated automatically. Ideally i dont want patch My PC to scan Teamviewer or update it. Rest of all softwares can be updated without issues. Is this possible?

I do not want to enable "Disable Auto updating of all apps" , since i want all the softwares to be updated automatically EXCEPT teamviewer. What to do?

You can right-click on any app and choose to disable scanning or disable auto update for this app.
