Software Audit - Option to Replace Old Software Versions

I would like to see a optional setting that would replace older versions of a software when you do a full/software Audit.

The setting would take older versions of a software for example Adobe Reader 9.5.1, uninstall it, and replace it with Adobe Reader 10.1.3.

    I scan for non-Microsoft patches and we are running Adobe Acrobat X and Reader. Both are at end of life and the program does not provide any indication. We are written up in an audit regarding this.

    Yes, this absolutely should be included! An option to upgrade MAJOR versions automatically would be nice.

    I just started with LanGuard and didn't pick up on this during our evaluation. I'm amazed that this feature isn't already available.

    This is pretty common for the patch management systems we have used. Rather than upping the major version, they will just get you to the latest minor version of your current major version. It is understandable since major version updates often break functionality, but there should be an option.

    At the very least it would be nice to have superseded patches all grouped together under the most recent version of that patch as well as perhaps the notice that a newer version of that product is available for installation.

    So often I go into the remediation window and have to trawl through the list of red superseded items until i get what i want.
