Hello,

I have just been asked to perform the first patch for our software. I followed the kb article Q106362 and everything seemed to work seemlessly. I ended up with about a 500k file. When I run the patch it requires the original source to be on the computer and it installs every file all over again. This patch effectively works and it does replace the one file this patch is intended too. Why though, does it re-install all the files. Because most of our users installed off a CD this means I'll have to distribute the patch with the initial installation all on one CD. Some users download from the web, this means that they'll have to download 25M instead of 500K. Can any one help, did I do something wrong??

thank you so much!
-Jill

try this:

for the 2nd release, under the previous package option for this release, browse for the first release msi file before you make a build for the patch wizard.

In the patch wizard, do not check the option "use entire files"
