Goodbye AutoPatcher

August 29th, 2007

If you happened to be a user of AutoPatcher, then chances are that you knew just how useful it could be.  Well, that's all history now has Microsoft's legal department pulls the plug on it.

Today we received an e-mail from Microsoft, requesting the immediate take-down of the download page, which of course means that AutoPatcher is probably history. As much as we disagree, we can do very little, and although the download page is merely a collection of mirrors, we took the download page down.

We would like to thank you for your support. For the past 4 years, it has been a blast. Unfortunately, it seems like it's the end of AutoPatcher as we know it.

Well that sucks.  I'm really not sure why Microsoft decided to pull the trigger on it now.  I know that security concerns were on the list of things that worried Microsoft but I don't buy that.
