Introduction to Visual Patch 2.0
Visual Patch 2.0 is a fast and efficient system for creating software patches. This unique solution features state-of-the-art binary differencing and compression algorithms, combined with a powerful full-history patching engine. Visual Patch makes an excellent...
I've got 2 versions of my software. I know how to create an update program, but I want to create another one, which won't check files in an old version (in old version there's one Keyfile and my patcher always checks, if that file is really there - and I want that the patcher doesn't check any file...
On the IndigoRose web site under the information for VisualPatch 2, there is one sentence that says ;" Pair it with TrueUpdate for a totally automated software updating solution."
Is there anyone that can explain me how to do this as I have both programs but can's find any information about this...
I'm sure many developers are more experienced than I am when it comes to corporate firewalls and security in general.
How do you deal with corporate clients who need to patch their software but aren't allowed to download files with .exe or .zip file extensions? Do we negotiate with their IT...
I have the following problem:
I have a dialog with a body text. In this body text is a session variable. While the dialog is displayed, the session variable changes. When the user clicks on a button, on that dialog, I would like to refresh the body text so that the new value of the...
I keep getting out of memory errors when I try to build a patch or add a new version to my project. I have 4GB of RAM, plenty of extra hard drive space and no other apps running that consume large amounts of memory. When I look in the Processes tab in my task manager, it shows multiple versions...
I've a problem with a Silent Patch developed with VP2.
The Patch doesn't work at some of our customers and I can't reproduce the error. The Patch aborts always with the same message and on the same file:
Deleting original file (5): C:\Programme\update.seven win BtB...
I have two versions of my SW, 29.12.05 and 29.12.06, where the latter is a very simple patch of the former. Version 29.12.05 has been installed by SF7, including writing to the registry of all relevant info (application name, product name, version number etc.).
Now I try to patch this...
I have a very complicated build process that I am trying to simplify. I was very excited to see that visual patch 2.0 allows unattended builds because I am trying to get my entire software build process to be unattended.
When I do a search for unattended build in the help or in the pdf, the only...
Here's my code:
-- Location method: Registry key
-- Read a folder path from the Registry.
if not g_InstalledVersion then
local MainKey = HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE;
local SubKey = SessionVar.Expand("SOFTWARE\\YORKFURNSRVGD\\");
local ValueName = "Location";
local FolderPath =...
I don't know since when, my visual patch exe file deletes all the files in the destination folder after patching it up. I just found it a couple days ago. I noticed the last step was to delete legacy files, so I went into project settings advanced, checked Delete Legacy Files off. It seems...
I sometimes create multiple builds under the same version number, i.e. 1.0.2 may have several builds (with or without minor changes - I know I shouldn't but nevertheless...)
Currently my pacth lets users locate the desired directory, then uses this code:
I purchased Visual Patch on the basis that it allows us to do what we need to do with the interface for our patches; namely, it allows us to not have one.
But! A totally silent patch that has updates only one 43k file still creates a patch of at least 500k. The way we do patches (lots...
Is it possible to change the final icon used for the patch.exe file?
I am evaluating Visual Patch 2.
Is it possible to let the User locate the install/patch directory?
I would like to follow this logic:
1) check the local dir first
2) if not found, check the registry
Is it possible to use relative file paths? I can't find anything on this subject, but it appears that a full path is always needed.
I need to copy a file from an Install directory up one directory (to the App dir.). The problem is that my patch is in the Install dir. I can reference the source...
Because i only want to patch some files from one version to another, i wonder me if there is a way to specify a "base folder".
I can't use "Folder Reference" because only some files+subdir have to be patched. I.E, source files should not be sent :)
Actually, i have to manually change all...
Can anyone shed light on what this means? We have been using visual patch 2.0 for a while with no issues (really nice application by the way) and then bam, one of our computers is giving me the cyber-finger and when I try to apply the patch, it gives this error (error dialog image is attached).
Urgently need to make patch for a file that is greater than 2GB, suppose splitting it into several pieces is not a very good idea :)
If there any way to pass through this limitation?
I have the following problem: I provide several languages with my patch. In the script I detect the language of Windows and then try to set this language for the patch. Therefor I have several variables to define how many and which languages are supported by my patch. Now everytime when...

I've run into a problem with a patch that doesn't yet make sense to me and I wonder if anybody else has seen it.
Here's the scenario:
The patch handles three versions of our software and affects 12 files. Of the 12, 11 are different in all three versions. One of the files changed from the...
