Is there a way to tell PatchMyPC to run through a powershell script?  I have an elderly mom who has trouble clicking on things but she wants to do things for herself.  I'd like to be able to write a script that she can just click on on the desktop and have it silently in the background run PatchMyPC and update any software found.  Is this possible?


PMPC has a build in scheduler, so you can schedule the run at a time where your mom is normally logged on.
In addition the task is run if a run is missed.

Thanks for sharing the update


You can use a PowerShell script to run PatchMyPC for automatic updates. It's easy to set up, and your mom can just double-click the script on her desktop.


Yeah, you can definitely do that with PatchMyPC. You can create a simple PowerShell script that runs PatchMyPC silently in the background to update software. Just make sure to set it up properly, and your mom should be able to click it on the desktop without any hassle.


Yes, it is possible to run PatchMyPC through a PowerShell script. You can create a PowerShell script that automates the process of running PatchMyPC and updating software. Once the script is written, you can create a shortcut to it on your mom's desktop, allowing her to simply click on it to initiate the update process. This can help simplify the task for her while running silently in the background.
