I have an installshield project that I am unable to create patches with. Under the 'Media' section of my project I only have 'Path Variables' and 'Releases' as an available option. It is my understanding that patch options should be available here. I have done some searching on the matter and cannot find out why this is not available to me. Why would that be?

For the sake of avoiding an XY problem, allow me to elaborate on my situation. I have some software that I develop and maintain, we issue major updates to this software through this installshield project, but I want to update my current method for creating small, quick, patches for the software (e.g. hotfixes).

Because your project type is InstallScript. See here for further infos:
