Why do I keep needing to find my update off a site rather than be taken right to the download? To me, this would be a better chance of malware being installed if the wrong choice was downloaded and you're not familiar with the program you are updating.

Once you have installed the software, turn OFF the internet and then Run the software and then keep the auto update OFF. Then you can switch your internet ON. By doing this your previous GOTD softwares will not be auto updated and you can still enjoy them.

This setting is necessary because if they auto updated then all your previous GOTD softwares will switch to Free version.

Love this software, I've used the free version for many years. Just as a side note, anybody that uses SUMO via the PortableApps platform can use this registration as well to upgrade to the Pro version.

JUST BE AWARE, that the PortableApps platform takes care of the updating of all of it's installed apps. The SUMO app won't prompt you to update by default, but the PortableApps platform WILL. There is no way that I know of to turn off update checking for certain apps, so you will have to remember to uncheck the box when PortableApps prompts you to update SUMO, or you will loose that lifetime Pro license.

Install and registration went smoothly on a Win 10 Pro 64-bit laptop. Going to run this beside PatchMyPC to determine differences. Like that after scan, it automatically prioritizes programs requiring updates. Side benefit of simultaneously showing programs I'd forgotten were installed and therefore candidates to dump due to under-use. Probably wouldn't have installed if not for a lifetime license.

Download on a Windows 10 machine, working very well, Also added the Driver Update. This is not a complete package. I was able to SCAN, but the "updates" are found on there server ONLY. If you wish to download from the manufacture's website, you will need to purchase the PRO version. Its NOW un-installed, will not be using this software. Thank you.

Reply   |   Comment by Jack  –  5 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+27)

Jack, Dumo (the drivers update) is a separate program. This giveaway is for the software updater.

If Sumo wasn't taking you to the manufacturer's website, you hadn't activated it. You don't need to PURCHASE the pro version, just use the registration details in the readme and you have it!

Reply   |   Comment by JDP  –  5 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Jack,

Not quite sure what you were trying out, but the giveaway here IS the Pro version of SUMO. You have the choice of where to get the install files from, KCSoftware's website, OR the original software publishers website.

If you are referring to DUMO with your comments, then your experience would be expected, as the giveaway is for SUMO only. DUMO is a completely different software package and is not part of this giveaway.

Thank you for this give away. Sumo and Dumo are excellent programs to INFORM you about available software or drivers updates, but... I would NEVER allow automatic updates for whatsoever. As mentioned before by D Murphy, software updates could kill your actual license resulting in a no longer working program, and driver updates could kill your computer completely in some cases of non-supported drivers (older display drivers), especially with the latest version of Windows 10 (2004 and higher). One point hurts me however: this giveway is the "PRO" version, but when you click on the driver tab, you see that Dumo is not installed, and sends you to the publisher's page in order to purchase the program or to install the free version. At least this free Dumo version should be part of the Sumo package.

Dozens of Techie sites give Sumo a good rating. LifeHacker has Sumo as one of the top 5 in it's list and the only negative comment they say is,

"it only notifies you of what programs need updates—it won't download them for you, or even let you download them directly from their site like FileHippo's updater does. It just leads you to their site, which then leads you to a number of download pages where you can get the files. Plus the main download is riddled with crapware, though you can download a portable or "Lite" version from its download page as long as you avoid the big blue "Download" button and look at the smaller buttons next to it."

There are many paid and free updaters out there but my go-to is Glary Utilities. When updating software be aware of updates to GOTD free lifetime license as is mentioned by #7 D Murphy.

Tester, perhaps try it yourself so you don't repeat nonsense from second hand sources. The Pro version that s offered here DOES take you to the manufacturer's site. And neither pro or free versions are "riddled with crapware". The free version USED to come bundled a Google toolbar or some such, but that hasn't been the case for a long time.

Reply   |   Comment by JDP  –  5 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

JDP, I find it is hit & miss whether it takes you to a download site. Some go to the download page, others to a google search lookup.

I have now installed without issue and run the probram and indeed it 'finds' much more than other offerings that I have (MANY) but all it seems to do is take to to the sites to download rather than downloading and installing in the background.

Something that will take a LOT of time to do.

ALL users need to be aware that if the software you have on your system, came from this Giveaway site, then, chances are an update will revert you to a free (limited) version OR kill it altogether, so be very careful how you use this.

This software deactivated most of my GAOTD, never again will install it.

Reply   |   Comment by bob  –  6 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+10)

bob, Technically YOU deactivated them by installing updates to giveaway programs. It's not like it does anything behind your back, you have to physically download and install each and every program. Never update anything that was a giveaway (unless it's a repeat offer for a new version of the same program here)

bob, I Don't Know About You... But I ALWAYS Create A Restore Point Before Installing Any App On My PC. You May Want To Follow My Reasoning. I've Never Had Any Problems By Doing So.

bob, this is what I was worried about. Because most GAOTD softwares say that the giveaway is only for that particular version. Some even say that upgrading means buying the newer version

Frank Searle, why were you hoping to get the commercial license for this program at a discount? let alone for free here when there is no practical difference between the free and commercial license functionality except the nagware characteristic of the free version?

Interesting to see this here.
Warning - I have found that if you update GAOTD offerings you are then asked to pay and if you don't want to pay for the update its too late because you quite often then loose your FREE lifetime licence.
I am always very careful not to casually agree to update as it can result in losses.
Todays offering may well lead you to do just that.
BTW if you ever lost a GAOTD free lifetime licence this could well be the reason. It was on auto update.

If you've ever used Linux, then that comes with an application manager. Something similar is on Android/Apple phones - an app store. Nothing really exists like this for Windows, so you have to bounce around different websites looking for software, install it, and if the program doesn't have an update check, you have to maintain it yourself.
I'd heartily recommend Chocolatey. (www.chocolatey.org). It's an application store for Windows that lets you install software via a command-line, and also keep it updated via one command - 'choco update all'. Simple.
Very lightweight and simple to use. Want to install paint.net? 'choco install paint.net'. Virtualbox? 'choco install virtualbox'. It can all be scripted allowing you to install your favourite applications quickly and easily.
Always free (well, for home use) and a great way to keep your application base up to date.

Chris, IF you restrict your Windows 8 and above software use to just the official software managment systems, like most do on Android and Linux and IOS, so you only install Apps from windows store then you are offered updates as the developers on that platform push out new updates. If you opt for the traditional jailbroken windows free for all then just like Android, linux and iOS when jailbroken YOU become responsible for noticing and validating and installing updates yourself.

Chris,

Actually, Microsoft does have a package mgr. It's new, so can't match up to the more mature Chocolatey & its software database, yet, but it does exist.

Reply   |   Comment by mike  –  5 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Thats Microsoft store apps. I'm talking about proper applications - Adobe Reader, Handbrake, Notepad++, etc - not crappy 'apps' like 'Photos' that no-one will (or should) use.

Reply   |   Comment by Chris  –  5 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Chris, many more apps than cr-Apps like "Photos" exist on windows app store.... just because you would choose to jailbreak windows 8 and above does not mean they do not have automatic push updates package management... just means you have chosen to not use the built in package manager! BTW I never installed "Photos" App from the store it came pre-installed in my windows 10 so sounds like you've not even looked at Microsoft Windows App store in the first place!

How can I add a custom url to watch for updates?

"Lifetime, no updates"
So does this keep everything up-to-date except itself?

Given that Sumo itself won't get updated, does someone know how long does it stay effective in updating the software it monitors.

I currently use PatchMyPC which is free, updates many free applications, and has been around for a while.

Reply   |   Comment by Alok  –  6 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+25)

Alok, SUMo has been around for much longer than PatchMyPC and detects much more software.

Reply   |   Comment by Kyle  –  6 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-13)

Kyle, I understand that SUMo would do a lot more than PatchMyPC. My core question is that if SUMo won't update itself, how long is it likely to be effective in updating other applications? I presume that the information about monitored applications will keep on updating within SUMo automatically even if SUMo itself is not getting updated. Till how long that may be effective, i.e., SUMo will keep updating the monitored applications without issues?

Kyle,
buggy whips have been around longer than cars so they must be much better too.

Alok, you can stay on v5.11.x as long as you want. No time expiration.
However, if you later upgrade to 5.12 (or later) in a few weeks / month, then the GiveAway licence will automatically be removed. But then I can offer I nice discount if you want.
