In its latest release, PatchFactory 3.3, AgenSoft developers have taken a truly innovative approach making it possible not just to create one patch for a certain software version, but also monitor all the software products, product versions and version components that may have different location on the end-user's machine.

The innovative patch building features include cumulative patching to bring all in-field versions up to date using a single self-extracting executable, comparing files with size up to 2^63 Bytes (~8589934592 Gb) and flexible control under ratio "time/result" with the help of different comparing methods selection.
