PatchMyPC - updaterI greatly prefer Patch My PC, because it can download and silently install program updates.
On the other hand, SUMo doesn't handle the updates itself, it just provides a link to the software's download page.
An issue w/Thunderbird. Even though v78 is not yet released to update v68, v78 is treated as "official release", so running on v68, all we get are v78 announcements unless Thunderbird itself alerts us to an update. This is frustrating, as v78 is not ready for the masses, and had very limited (and buggy) extension support.
Also, my O&O updates are whacked because SUMo uses a referral link, which is blocked by mots ad-blockers. I guess this is a way to suck up to their partners, while nixing their user base.
I've never heard of RuckZuck before. I just ran it and it found several updates which were missed by Patch My PC. It was easy to select what programs I wanted to update, but I later found that I can right click and ignore specific updates. I'm using a giveaway version of PowerISO which has a license that is only valid for the version I had installed, so I needed to skip that program. The first time I ran it, it was only able to download and install a single update, as it failed to download the other updates. However, when I ran it a second time it was able to download and install the other updates.
That is why I use it as a secondary updater!I've never heard of RuckZuck before. I just ran it and it found several updates which were missed by Patch My PC.
I like this a lot, because like Patch My PC, it downloads and silently installs the updates. For those who've never tried it before, I highly recommend it.

OneDrive does auto-update, but if not (yet), due to server load-balancing, PatchMyPC would surely have picked it up?
Yes it is an insiders build.I also saw that update but due to the above, I suspect the version highlighted by RuckZuck may be a pre-release version?
OneDrive just updated yesterday, I know cause I looked at a spike of disk usage in Task Manager and saw OneDrive installer running. I think MS does update in batches (just like Win10). I wish they and Google (for Google Drive) would put a manual "check for update" in their apps.
PatchMyPC does not contain it. By the way there are 2 versions, Windows and Store. Store version would auto-update, not sure about Windows one?OneDrive does auto-update, but if not (yet), due to server load-balancing, PatchMyPC would surely have picked it up?
