Software Update: SUMo 5.12.16

Spread the love

KC Softwares has released version 5.12.16 of SUMo. SUMo, which stands for Software Update Monitor, is a program that scans the computer for existing software and then checks whether newer versions are available. By installing a driver agent can also check for new drivers. The free version only tells you which programs have a newer version and provides a link to a general search page on the KC Softwares website. The pro version often provides better download links that lead directly to the manufacturer’s download page, but updating remains a manual process, so you always have full control over your own system.

The pro version also has the option to update SUMo itself to a newer version and can also see whether computers connected to the local network have the latest updates via a well-arranged webpage. In addition to the default installer, there is also a portableversion available, which can do its job without having to be installed first. The following changes and improvements have been made in this release:
