Patch Management shows only a small percentages of the Zoom Client installations as applicable to any Zoom Client updates/bulletins in the SW Bulletin Details Compliance reports.


Those computers not showing as applicable to Zoom Client updates/bulletins were installed using the EXE based installer instead of the MSI based installer. 

In this case, the customer downloaded the EXE and MSI installers from There is a main download link at the top for the Zoom client, and this is the EXE based installer for end users. There is a drop-down at the top-right of the page, Download for IT Admin. This links to the MSI based installer that installs for all users on a computer.
