    Could you re-open Patch My PC Updater and let me know if it's detected updated now?

    I have using the application for a few weeks and I like it I have one one minor issue with it. I use a standard user account as my daily account and even thou it elevates using UAC it won't update onedrive it says it has updated onedrive but then if I check for updates again it says it is out of date still.

    If I logon to my admin account onedrive updates without any issue.

    I am using windows 10 pro 1709
    if you need any further details let me know.

    When UAC elevates, it sounds like you entering in another user account to run as admin? OneDrive may not support updating unless the actual user that is running the app is also the logged in user. OneDrive is installed per user and sometimes they don't like installing under different context than the current logged in user.

    It should be up to date. We updated it to this version earlier this morning.

    W0W where have I been. Nothing is been as simple and as easy in updating the apps as this.

    So much always going on all the time it's cool to find time to check things out.

    Thanks for the effort putting this together and maintaining STRICT principle on how it should do what's expected! :thumb:

    Thanks for the feedback! Don't forget it can also be used to install new apps in addition to updating currently installed apps. More info on that in the IT Pro guide: https://patchmypc.net/patch-my-pc-updater-documentation

    Is it already possible to use Patch My PC without giving it any outbound network access?

    Unfortunately no, It's something we may look at for an update.

    I see, what are getting at. Why not to update an offline computer? Perform a scan and save the config, maybe even for multiple computers (based on the name/MAC or whatever).
    Then connect on another computer and download updates or simply download all software prior to running it on an offline computer to take full advantage of "It Pro Caching Mode".

    The "IT Pro Caching Mode" was definitely a first step to allowing Patch My PC to run when a PC is offline. The next main thing is to determine how we want to save the latest definitions. It's a little more tricky since we are just using a standalone portable EXE.

    To clarify, I just want to see the GUI, select which updates I want, and then will I give it network access. Last time I checked, it refused to start if it can't connect. This is a bit ridiculous if you ask me, no offense.

    If it can't connect it can't check for database updates and so can't check the installed software for updates... So wouldn't blocking its connection defeat the software purpose?

    I think this is a great idea for Patch My PC to D/L if a user wants and save the actual update for later or as is mentioned do an OffLine Update since the files would have already been pulled in and ready to be applied.

    Correct, eventually it will need network access, that's not the main point, but it refuses to run at all. No such problem with other app-updating tools, think of Sumo and PSI. But anyway, this app is clearly not for me.

    For better or worse, it works surprisingly well for my systems. And is a relief.

    Could PatchMyPC.ini remember folders, like IT Pro Cache or Portable App Download Path?
