As i talked with you on the phone i am awaiting for the technical response here.
I am guessing you're actually using the Shavlik Protect product, not Shavlik Patch for SCCM.
Any XP/2003 patches that were available prior to EOL and are still downloadable from vendor can be deployed in Protect like normal. Anything after the EOL, we do offer extended support (see this document) or you can create custom patches yourself to deploy.
This document provides an example of how to create a custom patch:
Hope that helps!
The next step would be to contact your Sales Rep or Reseller to purchase the Content Support Service, which will cover you for 1 year of custom content. Once that is in place you will be given a customer URI for a private content feed that the extended support patches and current patches will be released on. I see you have already emailed Protect-Help@Shavlik.com. I will send you more details in that email shortly.
From what i see there are 2 methods :
1: the method we discussed here
2: the method where i create a custom patch, and from what i understand this methos is free ???!!! : i just get the patches from microsoft and after that i just create a custom patch with no extra cash involved ?
Or ? am i missing something ?
Creating a Custom Patch is free you are correct, but that is a manual process and if you have loads of patches to create it can be time consuming. Also, you will have to create the detection logic and the deployment logic on your own, support is not entitled to do that for you.
