Create custom patches similar to SCUP

I'd like the ability to create my own custom patches similar to SCUP with withing the PatchMyPC interface. This would allow the custom updates to be visible with the other third party updates. Additionally, this would give access to some of the PatchMyPC features that are not in SCUP.

 

An example is to package an MSU file so it can be delivered using the same steps as other patches.

    I know that you guys say this is incompatible, but being able to leverage the scriptrunner would be invaluable in deploying apps. Plus, having a single pane of glass to manage and update apps deployed via Intune would be awesome.

    We currently have no plans to implement this feature. There are a lot of complexities here specifically around creating applicability rules (installable mainly) on the fly for these file types where adding in a SCUP would be a better option for full testing.

    One possible option for MSI's that we could potentially look at is creating a ConfigMgr application based on MSI's in a folder if you wanted to create an idea for that scenario.

    A custom deployment would be great.
    For example I have a program called "CustomApp.exe".

    It's simply an in-house application and just installs with the parameters /S for silent.

    It would be great to be able to just simply add a new custom package for this in PatchMyPC (either for on-prem or InTune) and let it do its thing. For updates we would only be responsible for manually updating the CustomApp.exe.

    PatchMyPC could then detect if different versions of the application were out there and update them accordingly.

    Would like to see this implemented as well. SCUP does well in some respects, but can't handle multi-file installs properly. This would be a great feature.
