View Full Version : Obsoletion???

10-23-2009, 09:55 AM
When I build a Quick Patch, I get the attached message box. It appears momentarily and does not wait to allow you to click on the buttons. It appears and the quickly disappears. It took many tries to capture this image.

Why am I getting this message?
Did I do something wrong?
Is there a better way and if so what is it?

Basically, does anyone know what is going on here?

Thanks in advance

I'm just guessing, but I think this has to do with a flag that gets set during the build process to simplify the nasty business of having several patches applied to a project at once.

Basically, the warning is informational because of the flag that's set, and as such there's code polling for it via FindWindow/SendKey to make it go away (since it stems from the microsoft PatchWiz.dll, and there's no way to avoid it). This is not dissimilar to how prompts in the past from other third party components were handled (notably signcode.exe).

My advice here would be to not worry about it, since Express is clearly handling the prompt according to how the quickpatch project needs to be set up.
