Third-party software patch list

The table below lists the third party patches available through Patch Manager.

The Windows agent communicates with the probe to determine what third-party applications can be updated. The agent obtains a list of applications from the probe and compares it to the software installed on a device. The agent determines what applications on a device need to be updated, and sends the list of available software updates needed on the device to SolarWinds N-central to be approved by the administrator.

For more information on how Patch Manager provides third-party patching, see Patching third-party software.

SolarWinds N-central Patch Management supports the most current available patch and its associated operating system.
Patching supports both 32-bit and 64-bit options from the vendor if available, unless otherwise noted.
