What is a Patch Installation?

Major software companies will periodically release patches, usually downloadable from the internet, that correct very specific problems in their software programs.

These downloads can be very small (a few KB) or very large (hundreds of MB or more). The file size and time it takes to download and install patches depend entirely on what the patch is for and how many fixes it will address.

You can install Patches using TOPIA - How do I install a patch? and track the deployment actions - How do I track the progress of a Patch Cycle or a Protection Cycle?
