    This very idea is next to impossible on Windows Especially if you have two Windows versions installed on different disks in same computer. Notion of centralised updater must be support by every program maker, as it is in Linux, etc. This is not 1st attempt at makeing Windows repository independent of software makers - and it works poorely liek them all. It is fun to play with though, but do not expect it be more, than stream of alerts, some of them true and others false. In automatic mode it ooks ike that: Program keeps downloading Heidi Eraser 6.0.6 when i have 6.0.7 and 5.8.6 installed Programs keep downloading and installing Microsoft PowerPoint Viewer 12, when i have PPV 11 installed. It instas it again and again each day. And so on. This is fun toy, but not a reliable tool. BTW, when installing - clear checkbox "run AppUpdater" - otherwise QT library would not be initialised well and the program would look very ugly and would crash. Complete the instaler 1st, and then run the program from Start menu.
