I got tired of the constant (manual) updates and reverted back to NirLauncher. Maybe I should take another look!
    Thanks again,

    WSCC has got it's own built in updater.

    Windows 10 Pro x64 FCU - XP/Vista/Win7/Win8.1 in VM for testing

    The updater is manual but of course it only updates when the actual tool is updated, and as it's not good practice to run an out of date tool it's my current practice to run the updater each time I use the WSCC, before any actual work. When I was using the tool many times a day I would run the update once a day at start of business.

    There is also Automatically Update SysInternals Tools with SysInternals Updater which could be run on a schedule for heavy users, not aware of a similar app for Nirsoft but it may be available

    I should have clarified that the constant need for updating WSCC just got wearing after a while. I agree that it's both necessary and justified that a huge collection of tools would need constant updating: it just started to bother me to have to keep doing so. I guess I need to get back with the program. I'm going to install it on one of my VMs and live with it for a while and see how it goes. Thanks!
