Not only for security reasons, but also for best working practice it is essential to keep your software bang up to date. The FileHippo App Manager will scan your computer for installed software, check the versions and then send this information to to see if there are any newer releases. These are then neatly displayed in your browser for you to download. Please note that not all programs are supported.

The client is FREE, just over 400kb to download and only takes seconds to run! In fact on our test machines the process is complete in under 2 seconds!

The FileHippo App Manager works on any Windows PC running Windows 8, Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2003 or 2000. It requires that the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 client profile is installed, which you may download directly from here, or the installer will prompt and download it automatically.

The following updates have been undertaken in this latest version of FileHippo App Manager:

  • Improved error handling and reporting, especially around invalid proxy configurations.
  • Added functionality to test proxy settings.
  • Added digital signature to installer and executable.
  • Fixed some minor UI bugs.
