View Full Version : Binary diff patching for InstallScript projects?

Hi,

This is probably a simple question with a yes or no answer: Is there any facility available for InstallScript-only projects which allows me to only add the binary differences between two files into an update? Or should I be using the InstallScript/MSI project if I want this feature?

I have tried a Differential release and it seems to add the whole file, rather than only the differences between the two (it also adds files when only the date has changed, but that is another problem).

Thanks,

-Paul
