Autopatcher over network - FAQ links appear dead
Posted 01 May 2008 - 07:36 AM
I am having some issues running Autopatcher over a network. Some updates get to 99% and appear to freeze. I'm guessing the problem will be solved by the utility / instructions mentioned in the "Can i use AutoPatcher from a network share?" section of FAQ but the links the answer refers to appear to be dead..

FAQ is out of date which is on my to-do list to update. AutoPatcher doesn't work on a network share currenlty.

AP sort of works via a network but some of the hotfixes and other items will fail to install (often for strange and inexplicable reasons).
I run AP from the following .CMD file (placed into the AP root folder) and this helps a bit:
setlocal enableextensions enabledelayedexpansion
autopatcher.exe /nolicense /verbose /log /report /neverselectinstalled
It might work better of you make a share using a drive letter (e.g Z:) to point to your AP network install.
Be prepared for things to fail to install though :/ Unless you have a super fast network this will also be a slow way to use AP.
Installing from a DVD or an external hard drive seems to be the best way to use AP at this time.
