I would ask some question about QuickPatch

I have a program (version 1.0 for example) and then I create a patch (version 1.1). After this the development goes on and I have another Patch (program version 1.2)

I have to create a QuickPatch 1.0->1.1 and Another QuickPatch 1.1->1.2 or is sufficent one single QuickPatch 1.0->1.2 and Msi/InstallShield recognize the target version and apply the adeguate patch ?

Thanks

When you build the 1.2 patch, can choose to have it apply to 1.0, or 1.0 patched to 1.1.

Thus the 1.2 patch can be a cumulative patch (containing the changes nessesary to take 1.0 to 1.2, or 1.1 to 1.2).

You can also choose to have 1.2 only work if 1.1 is not applied. Our Patch Histroy view supports setting this up.

Hopefully this answers your question,
