Windows Autopatcher Under Fire

August 30, 2007

This is an incredible dumb move by Microsoft. Instead of offering a service like this themselves, they want to take down the Autopatcher site, where you can get all windows updates in one convenient packages. The Windows update service is very slow, if you just reinstalled windows it takes a long time to update. With the big package from autopatcher it’s down much faster and you get all downloads in one or two big files, much more convenient.

The story is on ArsTechnica


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.
