PSI shows that VLC Media Player needs a manual update. So I did a manual update and now have version 2.0.4. However, PSI still says I need a manual update, and shows itself to be updating the VLC program 2.x. I did “Scan Again” several times, rebooted, waited a day, but it still tries to update the program or shows “Update Now”.

How can I get this resolved?

You don't say what version of psi you are using.....but it sounds like that although you've installed the newer version of VLC.....the previous/older file hasn't been removed.....psi continues to detect it and tries to update. You need to remove that file manually before rebooting and scanning.

Hope it helps........regards.......

That worked! What was odd is that when PSI said to update VLC, I opened the program, went to Check for Updates, & got the version 2.0.4. PSI was still saying to update VLC so I check again a number of times and the program showed to be up to date. After getting your advice I went to the VLC website and sure enough found version 2.0.5. Once it was installed, PSI was happy and so was I.

Thank you very much.
