I'm evaluating PatchFactory and like what I see thus far, however one of my requirements with patching is the support for "rolling" updates.

For example:
- ver 1.0 is released
- ver 1.1 is a patch that updates ver 1.0 to 1.1
- ver 1.2 is a patch that will update *either* ver 1.0 to 1.2 as well as update ver 1.1 to 1.2

In otherwords, I don't want my users to have to know which version of the software they have and download the appropriate patch. I'd rather that all users simply download a single patch and this patch is smart enough to know which version is installed and apply the appropriate patch.

Does PatchFactory support such a feature? I couldn't tell from the help files...

Unfortunately such feature as multiversion patch building is not available in the current version of PatchFactory 2.1.

We agree that this feature is really useful and necessary.
It will be definitely included in one of the next releases (approx. to the end of November).

You can subscribe to our newsletter to be informed of the latest information about product updates, site news and corporate events.

Thanks for your valuable feedback.

That would be indeed a great feature. In the past I have written a small stub program and attached several patches as resources. This stub detected which version was installed and applied the appropriate patch to it.
I will be happy to upgrade to the next version smile.gif

Cumulative patch building used to integrate several updates into one patch package is included in PatchFactory v3.
