Hi, I'm wondering is it possible to build multiple patches for a VB6.0 project? specifically, to build a QuickPatch on a previously built QuickPatch Projects.

If it's possible, how would I do it. Because I've been trying a few things, but none of them seems to work. I'm using Express 4.0, by the way.

Yes you can. However, once you create a QuickPath, anything patches you do after that will be QuickPatch projects them selves. That means you are limited to just Regitry and File changes.

To do this:
1. Create a new setup project and add a file
2. Build
3. Create a QuickPatch project off this build
4. Add/Update files
5. Build
6. While QuickPatch project is open in IDE, go to "Tools->Create a QuickPatch"

This will create a QuickPatch of the QuickPatch. The Files and registry view should reflect the changes you made in the previous patch.
