The Usefulness of Patch Maker and what does Patch Maker provide?

The life of a software product is usually marked by the release of different versions. One version differs from the previous one by a small number of changes. Some sections of code in the executable files are different, new files may be added, some even deleted. What the author of the product usually does, is provide a new version of the files either as a new re-installable product or just the modified files, compressed.

The above procedure is very wasteful though. For example, if a file of 1Mg has only had say 10Kb altered within it, then why create an update patch that requires the full 1Mb. It would be far more efficient if just the altered data were used. Well this is the purpose of Patch Maker. This utility saves a huge amount of bytes by storing just the differences between files and even compressing this data.

This method has two distinct advantages:

Very small update patches, independent of the size and number of files of the original installation.

Ultimate protection of the update.
As most of the data is not stored in the update patch, it is impossible to steal your software unless you already possess a previous versions of the software.

Patch Maker is the complementary product of the Clickteam Install Creator series. They share the same professional-looking interface and the same ease of use. If you have used Install Creator you will feel right at home with Patch Maker.

As with Install Maker, Patch Maker produces an all-in-one executable instantly. These executable have a surprisingly small size : the minimum size is only 50Kb, which equates to 10 seconds with a 56K modem connection. You save your customer some valuable connection time.
Compared to similar software, Patch Maker is by far the fastest. It also has one of the best compression ratios available.
Patch Maker produces updaters with a professional interface, very similar to the one used by installation programs.
Patch Maker handles upgrades from multiple previous versions to a final version, for example you can have in the same patch upgrades from V1.0 to V1.2 and V1.1 to V1.2...
