    After Installing Patch Manager, you are unable to obtain any 3rd Party Patches under Software Publishing when running the Patch Manager Update / Third Party Updates  Configuration wizard. When attempting to get the Patch Manager Update Configuration Wizard to get a list of 3rd party products, you see only Catalog.

     

     

    At the end the Server may also State:
