View Full Version : quick patch help

12-08-2005, 10:04 AM
When creating a quick patch; Defining Patch Settings, were do the "Files To Patch" come from? In the display I see orignal set up files, then in the display below that i see Files To Patch. Do I get them from the original source files? I am really confused about this as there doesn't seem to be anything in the help files. :confused:

ok, I think I got past the file issue, now when I run the update, which by the way I assume you are to run the update.exe file? It says it can't add the update because the program is missing? What do I do now? :confused:

hmm.. totally lost on this patch thing. Do the patch files belong in the original install folder? This whole patch thing is totaly confusing. :mad:

I have been digging into this and it would seem that the file I am trying to update(patch) is a flash.exe file version 7.0.19 and no matter how many times I update the file the version number stays the same. Has anybody else run into this?
