This software has no information source of program versions publicly available other than what it harvests from its own users and then compiles a database of harvested program versions and number of those versions with limited sanity checking on highest version number available. It has no access to the distribution channels of any software other than its own program version. Dumo works in the same way too, which is why they only send you to a search engine or the companies home pages and leave it to YOU to find the alleged update/upgrade yourself.

Kaspersky Internet Security identifies SUMo as 'Incompatible software was found. You are advised to remove the incompatible software for the proper performance of Kaspersky Internet Security'

Hmmm, KIS doesn't flag up the installed freeware PatchMyPC as a similar issue.

I am getting a: Invalid License.
Entering the code and name goes fine and a 'thank you' note, but once that is clicked away, a new prompt with a small ''Invalid License' pops up. I did uninstall an older 2021 '5.12' version first(with reboot).

Also tried the 'newer' version, but failed too.
Any advice?

I'm running v. 5.14.2.509 from the last give away. Wonder if upgrading is worth it because sometimes, new versions only add new advertising nags without enhanced function. Anyone here take the leap?

Reply   |   Comment by Buckley  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

Buckley, yes, many functionnal / performance improvement. Full changelog is available on KC Softwares site and in SUMo "?" menu.

Reply   |   Comment by Kyle  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Buckley, As a long time user, Sumo updates are usually to fix changes to software names and small internal changes. Sumo has never, to my knowledge, contained advertising and neither does this version.

Simple program, but, too, simple. I don't want to click links just to go and seek out the real download link for the software. I want it to just update the software like PatchMyPC does. In a consumer world, I cant trust that my mom/dad/grandpa/grandma will know whether or not they need the 32 bit or 64 bit version of TextPad.

In short, this only tells you that the software is out of date, but you have to find it. Other 3rd party app programs download the actual update and install it.

"In short, this only tells you that the software is out of date, but you have to find it. Other 3rd party app programs download the actual update and install it."

True... Potential problem is a supply chain attack. Someone(s) hacks into PatchMyPC's servers, and every update it sends out is poisoned. There's a Lot of focus on that sort of thing among cyber criminals currently, because it's so efficient -- one successful attack can bring in thousands of victims.

Reply   |   Comment by mike  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+12)

mike, that's exactly the point.

Security-wise SUMo is much safer, gives you more control.... and detects MUCH MORE software

Reply   |   Comment by Kyle  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

mike, to that same degree, open source apps are being targeted, too, even when downloaded from trusted locations (see Malicious PyPI package on Bleeping). This is why its so important to have layered security. We should just have doors on our homes, but locks, deadbolts, alarms, etc. Same goes with computers. Now, when we look at the more common attack vectors, vulnerable applications would rank significantly higher than a supply chain attack. In this case, updating the programs provides more of a benefit than not. The supply chain risk is a lot lower on the "possibilities" list.

My sample shows that it might be dangerous.

This is an example line saying, Joplin has a version 2.8.8.0:
Joplin (64 bits) Laurent Cozic 2.7.15.0 Update vorhanden (2.8.8.0) C:\Program Files\Joplin\Joplin.exe

If you go to the joplin side it still provides version 2.7.15.0 and there IS NO version 2.8.8.0. How can this be??
I do not want to download any trojan from an untrusted source instead of an official updated version.

Peter, it's now correctly indicated as "beta" by SUMo. Thanks for reporting. Not dangerous at all.

Reply   |   Comment by Kyle  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

mike, Why is the software providing updates for a pre-release build? That should not be the case. Beta and Pre-Release are not the same software type.

My two upgrades from Windows 10 came in automatically via Microsoft, with Windows.old on the PC twice in a few months. If there are updates for Windows, they also come in automatically and are installed. So I see no reason to install something from that French company KC software. Whatever Avant Browser does, the newer version does not work in my Windows 10.) I use 3 browsers. My 12 other programs have never received updates except one.
This PC cannot be upgraded to Windows 11 because of the CPU "AMD Ryzen 5 2400G with Radeon Vega Graphics 3.60 GHz". I am quite satisfied with Windows 10.

"My 12 other programs have never received updates except one."

If that's true then you're correct -- you don't need an app to check if your 12 programs have been updated.

"Whatever Avant Browser does..."

Elisa Fernell, you should run a quick scan with SUMo. If it finds nothing, then you'd be right. But it's quite likely that it'll find something needing an update ;-)

Most of the programs on your PC now-a-days run their own auto-up-date and just what you need, another program running in the back ground slowing down your system even more.

Reply   |   Comment by Wahtsup  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+12)

Wahtsup, no, because you can update software BEFORE having to use them and therefore no extra burden when you want to work/play as everything is up to date !

Reply   |   Comment by Kyle  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Wahtsup, Would be good if you based your comments on the actual program, which DOESN'T run in the background.

A few weeks ago, I did a multi-step scheduling hack on the app's update servers, and fortunately I did not find any privacy breaches.

I keep trying this software, and it keeps giving me updates that are older than the versions I have in half the cases. I'd see the point if it was beta versions I had installed, but I don't run beta versions of any software.

Windows 10 and 11 will update the drivers automatically.

If you use PortableApps, your portable applications will be updated automatically. Most of them are free.

Reply   |   Comment by krypteller  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+14)

krypteller, Yes the drivers update automatically but this program informs you which other programs have an update available, it does a thorough job of this and so I find it useful.

Chris Shelbourn, What data does KC software bases that some programs need an update?

Reply   |   Comment by Elisa Fernell  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

"Windows 10 and 11 will update the drivers automatically."

Please be careful when it comes to Windows Update offering drivers. Sometimes they're older, sometimes they're newer, and often they do not play well with the driver releases direct from the manufacturers, e.g. Intel, AMD, & Realtek are ones I've seen & had problems with.

Reply   |   Comment by mike  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Elisa Fernell, It just tell you that there is a more modern version of a program available.

krypteller, SUMo is not for Drivers but for Software with a much broader base than PA

Reply   |   Comment by Kyle  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Kyle, the description of the SUMo giveaway above reads:

"Detects required drivers update (requires DUMo);"

Is this sentence incorrect?

Kyle, Re "for Software with a much broader base than PA"

Correct. But if an app is included in PortableApps, I see that as a kind of quality assurance. PA includes a free version of SUMo. So I use that free version.
