I would like to bring the following to the attention of the HP Softpaq Download Manager, development team.
1. Provide a "Are you sure you want to cancel the download" - button. Clicking on the cancel button by accident immediately results in a cancellation of the download.
2. Provide a "Category filter". This filter would make it possible to filter out unwanted software in the overview, for example I want to only download "Manageability - Driver Packs" or "Driver - Graphics", this currently is not possible.
3. Provide a "Download only latest available softpacks". I'm fully aware this option is available on HP computers which have the softpaq download manager installed: FAQ(04): Can SDM display only the latest SoftPaqs? but this option or functionality is not available when running softpaq download manager on a deployment server, or Hyper-V machine.
To underscribe my feature requests, I have written a blog about it!
Thanks for your feedback, it's nice to see such a quick response! For your response on feature requiest #3, to my understanding this will only work on HP hardware, in a virtual machine I receive the following error:
So it will only work on HP hardware, and not on a deployment server for example, which runs VMware or Hyper-V
The default mode for SDM is update mode and it will only work on HP commercial products. If SDM is being launched inside a virtual machine, SDM will not recognize it as an HP computer and the SDM Update Mode will not be available.
However, you can select All Products mode to see SoftPaqs for all models supported by SDM in any computer, including non-HP computers and virtual machines. Please refer to the "Using SoftPaq Download Manager" section in the Help for more information.
