AutoPatcher was one of the first software based services that allowed Windows users to download all released service packs and patches for their operating system and Microsoft Office. The service had been in deer troubles in the past thanks to an disagreement with Microsoft. They did come back from that and have changed the way AutoPatcher operates.
AutoPatcher is offered as a portable program that can be executed after unpacking the download file. It will then display a list of all available release packages that can be downloaded to the local computer system.
Available for selection are the core program files. operating system patches for Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 and Windows Vista, Microsoft Office XP, 2003 and 2007, the Microsoft .net Framework, DirectX, Java runtime and Adobe Reader. Most release packages are offered in all languages while some only in specific languages.
Windows 7 was integrated in the latest release of AutoPatcher. AutoPatcher only supports 32-bit operating systems right now which means that the Windows 7 patches are also only offered for the 32-bit version of the operating system.
The main benefit of using AutoPatcher is that it will download all patches that have been released to the local computer system with the option to install them afterwards. This means that the patches can be installed while the computer is offline. It also means that the patches can be distributed to other computer systems to patch those as well.
AutoPatcher can be downloaded from the developer’s website, it should run on all Microsoft operating systems including 64-bit editions.
