  • Hi Gancat,

    Thank you for your post.

    As Phil mentioned, you should have to use MsiMsp.exe in the Windows SDK or some third party tools that can make patches.
    Here is a tutorial that refers to create patches for applications:

    Hope this helps. If you have any concern, please feel free to let me know.

  • Search in the Windows SDK for MsiMsp, PCP files and how to create a patch.  Visual Studio 2005 doesn't create patch files, so you need to use the SDK.
