PatchFiles Action

The PatchFiles action queries the Patch table to determine which patches are to be applied. The PatchFiles action also performs the byte-wise patching of the files.

Sequence Restrictions

If the file that is to be patched is not installed, the PatchFiles action must come after the InstallFiles action that installs the file. Previously installed files may be patched at any point in the action sequence. The DuplicateFiles Action must come after the PatchFiles action to prevent duplicating the unpatched version of the file.
