I have HP ProBook 4510s with Windows 7 Ultimate installed and I know that this notebook don’t come with this version of Windows, so I cannot use “Show This Computer” mode. But eventhough I select “Show All Products” mode there is no available SoftPaqs.
Am I doing something wrong, how can I display available SoftPaqs in Download Manager?
Solved! Go to Solution.

SDM will match the installed OS exactly to the HP tested offerings and since Ultimate was not offered for the 4510s, SDM will not support Update mode. You can still use SDM to download your SoftPaqs by selecting a simliar supported OS in "All Products" mode.

Well that is the problem, there is no SoftPaqs displayed even though I selected "All Products" mode with similar supported OS (Windows 7 Professional 32, Windows 7 Home Basic 32, Windows 7 Home Premium 32). I have tried selecting one, selecting combination of these still nothing. Any suggestions what to do?

This is a peer to peer forum, not an official HP support site.
Have you tried the HPSC? http://www.hp.com/go/hpsc

If products are not showing in All product mode, there could be something wrong with your catalog. Please reset it and run SDM again.
Otherwise, send feedback (and a log file) by selecting Help - Provide Feedback to HP from the main menu.

After resetting the catalogue I can see the SoftPaqs in SDM All Product mode. Still I am not able to see only my computer and to check updates, but as said it is not possible as I have windows 7 ultimate..
Thanks louy ;)

I've got Win7pro x64 on HP Probook 6460b Eng installation from branded HP DVD
I was able to use Softpaq manager v126.96.36.199 however now it autoupdates directly to v188.8.131.52 which does not work at all for this model.
I've tried resetting SDM, uninstalled 184.108.40.206, reinstalled 220.127.116.11 which again immeaditely updates it back.
It does not matter what I select in tools->options for filters, none work.
Notebooks bought from Finland, but hardly this can be the problem?
Is there a way to keep SDM from autoupdating itself? <---

To answer your question: no, there is no way to prevent SDM from autoupdating itself.
However, the problem you are experiencing seems to be with a bad catalog and not with the new version of SDM and is just a coincidence.
A fixed version of the catalog has been published. Please launch SDM to download.

I have downloaded SDM v18.104.22.168 but got the same issue...
I have ProBook 4530s and Windows 7 x64 Enterprise English.
No matter what have been checked in OS/Language Filter -> "No SoftPaq found"
I've reset Catalog as pointed here:
but got the same issue...
Any suggestions please...
BTW, I used SDM v22.214.171.124 two years ago and it did work perfect in spite of notebook has quite different OS preinstalled
(later it has been replaced by Win7).

In "Update" mode, SDM displays the SoftPaqs associated with a model and operating system (and language) that have
been certified and tested by HP. The OS match has to be exact in versions of Windows prior to Windows 8. Although the 4530s has Win7 SoftPaqs avaliable, HP never tested that model with Windows 7 Enterprise and that is why SDM is stating that there are no SoftPaq available for it.
You can still use SDM with this OS in "All Products" mode, but you will have to install the SoftPaqs manually after download and SDM will not be able to display the installed status of the SoftPaqs as it does in "Update" mode.
