    Patch Maker .. patch file size is so hugh .. why ?

    Greetings,

    I tried to create a patch to update an application built from MMF2 Developer Edition.

    Original exe was 7.33 Mb
    New exe with only 1 line of code edited was 7.33 Mb

    PATCH FILE was 7.33 Mb ??????? WHY ???????

    thought it was supposed to compare & update only the differences.

    btw ... i've tried both the wizard and manually.

    please advice.

    I think Yves had said in the past Patch Maker doesn't really work on MMF2 created EXE files very well. Its really a solution for other products made with traditional programming tools.

    I don't think any will really work well with MMF created EXEs.

    You could possibly improve this by unchecking "Compress the runtime" in the application properties for both versions. Keeping your graphics and sound files external is a good solution to this problem.
