Visual Patch is a software development tool forbuilding application patches and updates. This binary patch makerfeatures DeltaMAX data compression for faster software deploymentand integration with software installation and patch managementtools from vendors like Installshield, Lumension, Patchlink,Shavlik, Indigo Rose and others.
Improve your software distribution and patch deployment systemswith this software patching tool designed for software developersand programmers. Visual Patch features state-of-the-art binarydifferencing and compression algorithms. This ensures you smallerand better performing software patches.
The algorithms used by Visual Patch were developed specifically fortheir impressive speed characteristics. Whereas software patchingwas once a notoriously slow and cumbersome process, companieschoosing Visual Patch have a distinct advantage. Unlike some otherproducts, Visual Patch’s full-history patching ability can updateany version of your software to the latest release.
You have full control over which versions of your software can bepatched with a single executable. Your users won’t have to worryabout finding multiple patches and applying them in the correctorder as they would if you used other, less sophisticated patchbuilders.
Visual Patch is a revolutionary upgrade with dozens of powerful newfeatures being added. At the core is the same amazing Lua-basedscripting engine found in other Indigo Rose software developmenttools (like Setup Factory, TrueUpdate, MSI Factory and AutoPlayMedia Studio).
The all new visual theme system allows you complete control overthe look and feel of your end product including images, controls,and fonts. No other tool provides the same level of performance andease of use.
