  3. Probably a dumb question

    I have a piece of software that requires a license file to run (extension .lf). The file must be unchanged at all times, even when the version changes.

  5. Patching non key files

    If the key files of two versions match but some files in the newer version have been modified does visual patch consider both versions to be the same just because the key files match? If yes, how do i make changes to other files without making changes to key files? and release a patch for that.

    Hello, I have some questions that are very important to me. I would appreciate having them answered. 1. Must I close running software that needs to be patched? Or will visual patch do this for me? 2. Consider the following criteria: If I do whole-file patching and I deliver a full-history...

  14. Always Update Certain Files

    I have been using VP for a few months, and one issue that has come up is that as you add additional versions, the patch file grows larger and takes longer to build. We have noticed that regardless of which version the end user has installed, we always want a core group of DLLs and one EXE file to...

  15. Command line arguments?

    Does Visual Patch have a mechanism for passing command line argumuments? I'd like to implement different behaviors if patching by directly clicking on the patcher vs. online updating.

  22. Star Database patch ?

    As I understand it, Visual Patch can be used for making database changes? If so, does someone have an example of how to add a column to a table in SQL Server. I assume this would be done as an Action but I can't find any information to show me where to start. Terry

The reason for the question is that my patched files seem to be randomly...
