Summary0004805: Flag for internal updater
DescriptionCould you add a flag 'internal updater' into your database?

With that flag you mark software which has an internal updater and for these you offer to run the software instead of opening the update page?

At the moment you have in the context menu

Get update from...
... from SUMo page
... from developer's site (Direct)

you could add
... from application

You should add only software which has a working updater
like FileZilla or SUMo (installed version)
but not these who only report updates
like LibreOffice or SUMo portable
or has a broken updater
like
VLC media player
TagsNo tags attached.

Have you tested "right click>Run application" ?

I want a flag which tells me that the software has an internal updater.
And if that flag is set then SUMo should open by default (optionally by default?) the software and not the developer's site.

"Run now" won't by always a solution since some application you report are dependancies of other.
like
mkvtoolnix-gui & mkvinfo
or
ABBYY FineReader & ABBYY Hot Folder & ABBYY Screenshot Reader

Only the first one has the installer or reports updates.
