Project: This information applies to QuickPatch projects.
A QuickPatch project is recommended for installation authors who want to ship small, single updates to their users. QuickPatch authoring provides a simple alternative to creating a patch in the Patch Design view, even though it provides less customization. Fundamentally, both patch creation methods produce the same deliverable types: .msp and .exe files.
To create a QuickPatch project for an existing .msi file or an existing QuickPatch, use the Create New QuickPatch Wizard.
Caution: Creating a QuickPatch project for an earlier QuickPatch without first building the earlier QuickPatch project may cause unexpected behavior.
To open the Create New QuickPatch Wizard:
Create a new project in InstallShield and select QuickPatch Project as the project type.
The QuickPatch you create using this method can be used to patch an existing .msi file or an existing QuickPatch.
Tip: You can use the Create New QuickPatch Wizard to create a QuickPatch project for an existing QuickPatch. As an alternative, you can open the latest QuickPatch project in InstallShield and specify that you want to create a QuickPatch project for the current QuickPatch. For more information, see Creating a QuickPatch Project for an Existing QuickPatch.
