URI property returned may be
https://stealthpuppy.com/evergreen/issues/. If you encounter this scenario, follow the troubleshooting steps.
Get-EvergreenApp does not fully support proxy servers. This will be fixed in a future release.
The folder structure created by

Save-EvergreenApp does not fully support proxy servers. This will be fixed in a future release.
Supports Windows platforms only - this function wraps
Resolve-DnsName which is not available under PowerShell 6+ on macOS or Linux. Application functions that use this private function will return an error on non-Windows platforms.
The 32-bit installers returned by
7Zip link to a SourceForge download page instead of the file directly. These installers can be downloaded by
Invoke-WebRequest by setting the UserAgent to the Googlebot.
Where Adobe releases an update for Acrobat/Reader for Windows ahead of macOS, the current patch release may not be returned. In most cases, Adobe keeps both platforms in sync, so this should be a rare occurrence.
The determine the current update version of
AdobeAcrobat, the URL for macOS updates is used:
https://armmf.adobe.com/arm-manifests/win/AcrobatDC/acrobat/current_version.txt. This provides a simple text lookup of the latest version number.
The Windows version of Adobe Acrobat and Reader uses an update URL like:
https://armmf.adobe.com/arm-manifests/win/AcrobatDCManifest3.msi, which would require unpacking and parsing the MSI file. Doing so may modify the host, so it will not be implemented.
The JSON data returned from the Adobe Acrobat Reader DC download URL (
https://get.adobe.com/reader/webservices/json/standalone/) returns extraneous data for the following languages, thus they have not been included in the manifest: Portuguese, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional).
The versions returned for Cisco WebEx may be out of date. Refer to Cisco WebEx - new app available, Evergreen returning legacy version only until a fix is found.
The version of the HDX RealTime Media Engine for Microsoft Skype for Business for Windows returned by
CitrixWorkspaceApp is out of date. This is the version of the HDX RTME that is returned by the Workspace App update feed (https://downloadplugins.citrix.com/ReceiverUpdates/Prod/catalog_win.xml). Use
CitrixWorkspaceAppFeed to find the latest version of the HDX RTME.
CitrixWorkspaceAppFeed returns a link to the download page and not the installer directly. See Get-CitrixWorkspaceApp does not return the latest Citrix HDX RealTime Media Engine.
Supports Windows platforms only - this application relies on
Resolve-DnsName which is not available under PowerShell 6+ on macOS or Linux.
LibreOffice uses the update host at
https://update.libreoffice.org/check.php to determine the available update release. The Document Foundation does not immediately make the update host return the latest version at the time of release. In a scenario where the update host does not return the very latest version and the TDF has pulled the downloads for the same version returned from the update host,
LibreOffice is unable to build valid download links.
The only recourse at this time is to wait until the TDF tells the update host to return the latest version. Also see LibreOffice version
Microsoft365Apps returns publicly documented channels only. Additional channels may be available from the Microsoft 365 Apps update API; however, these may not align to channels documented at microsoft.com, so are not included in this function.
Channel properties are listed in the following articles: Configuration options for the Office Deployment Tool, Update channel for Office LTSC 2021, Update channel for Office 2019.
Full channel names are listed here: Update history for Microsoft 365 Apps.
Depending on release schedules, the preview version of the FSLogix Apps download may not be available. The preview version is found here:
https://aka.ms/fslogix/downloadpreview - if no preview version is behind this URL,
Get-EvergreenApps -Name MicrosoftFSLogixApps will return an error when attempting to resolve the preview URL, but will continue to return the release version.
The product release feed used by the Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio (e.g., https://download.microsoft.com/download/3/f/d/3fd533f5-fdfc-407d-98a6-d5deb214d13b/SSMS_PRODUCTRELEASESFEED.xml) includes the internal build number of the SQL Server Management Studio and not the display version, thus the version return will be similar to
15.0.18369.0 instead of the display version:
18.9.1. See Download SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) for more info. Also see SQL SSMS is reporting the wrong version.
The version number returned by the Microsoft Teams update API may be slightly different to the version number displayed in the
ProductVersion property in the MSI or in Programs and Features. For example,
Get-EvergreenApp -Name MicrosoftTeams may report a version number of
1.4.00.8872, but the Windows Installer may report
126.96.36.19972. Also see Get-MicrosoftTeams displays slightly wrong formatted version number.
Returning the latest version and download for OBS Studio may fail when the OBS Project modifies the availability of the update manifest at
Get-EvergreenApp -Name OBSStudio will return a 404 error. The only recourse is to wait until the OBS Project makes the manifest available again.
Evergreen could query versions from the GitHub repository; however, the the OBS Project does not consistently maintain releases in the repository. In some instances a specific release of OBS Studio may address an issue with the macOS version only and
OBSStudio would then return no results.
VMwareHorizonClient may not always return the current release - the major version property in the VMware Horizon Client software update data does not use easily sortable versioning. This may be fixed in a future release. Also see VMware Horizon Client reporting out of date version.
VMwareHorizonClient returns the Horizon Client in .tar format. This the same URL used when the Horizon Client updates itself - you will need to unpack the .tar file to retrieve the executable installer.
Zoom returns versions as
Latest for some downloads - the source used by this function does not provide a method for determining the version number. Also see Zoom currently failing
