I have had something happen that has pretty much taken the wind out of my programming sails.
Hey APGuy. Whatever the reason is, I hope it works out well.

Re: Continue life of Autopatcher.

Anyone can edit the definition files, but I don't think it's very likely. Updating programs is not that big of a problem.
The core reason for AP was always Windows where it's difficult to know what updates you need.

Re: Releases in the Future

Are these rollup updates safe (for pre-W10), or do they also include all the telemetry/spying stuff?

Re: A few old updates missing?

But only for security updates.

BTW, the way I tried to keep up with Office updates is this:

Re: Ran as administrator, AP fails finding OCX?

Tried registering the OCX under SysWOW64 with regsvr32. Same result. And yes, the log is the same with /debug. One difference I see with Process Monitor is that when it fails there's no access to RICHED20.DLL, unlike when it works. Another tidbit I noticed: while the log complains about line 104, th...

Re: A few old updates missing?

While KB3174644 is officially defined as superseded by the monthly rollups since 6/2017, the other two aren't.
Maybe in fact they are, but it's not indicated in Microsoft's Update Catalog.

Is there a way to check if somethings superseded other than checking the Update Catalog?

A few old updates missing?

How do you keep track of new updates that become available, or old ones that are removed?

I think I found three security updates that weren't included in AP's Win8 list.

2016/9:
KB3175024
KB3174644

2017/3:
KB4012213
