  • Foxit reader update fails

    Hi Team,

    We are using Foxit reader enterprise version. We had recently installed in the month of July. Recently we see there was update with Foxit reader to version Foxit seems to not update automatically. We have to go to About Foxit and there it starts to download the updates and informs us to restart foxit so that it can update. But when we press the button, foxit restarts and nothing happens and this in a loop, how many times you open About tab under foxit.

    We tried enabling auto install updates option under preference, after you apply and restart foxit, we see a dialog box saying updating foxit reader. But it eventually fails after few minutes.

    We even tried to push the updated packages via intune, but seems it is not updating via intune too.

    We are currently updating them manually and its a hectic work. Request someone to help fix this issue so that it automatically updates in the backend.

    PS: the above actions are tested on more than 5 machines

      Sorry for the delayed reply. I have attached the screenshot of the error we are getting while updating. This forced update menu only comes when i run foxit as an administator as the users account doesnt have Admin rights.

      When i get a dialog box saying "There is an update for Foxit" and i press Install now button, it starts the update process and tells me to close foxit reader inorder to continue the installation. But when i close foxit, it gives throws as error as shown in the screenshot.

      This is after we deploying the MSI Enterprise package from Company Portal (Intune)

      Kindly let me know how to update from intune, without asking admin rights at the users side.

            Hi Guys, is there anyway where we can get .msi patch file instead of .msp patches ?

            or can anyone guide how to deploy MSP patches for foxit reader via Intune

                Thanks Roy for your reply. But can i push this file to an existing installation of Foxit via Intune ? Hope it doesnt cause any issue.

                I thought you could generate an msi file only for update patch rather than .msp file
