Microsoft The AutoPatcher project has been asked by Microsoft to stop operations. "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."

Microsoft does more and more to alienate their customers. Autopatcher is not well known to many, however MS keeps adding more annoying hurdles to their customers to "fight piracy" "genuine advantage" and (fill in your example here), that their paying customers will start leaving. It may not be overnight, but does anyone remember the "invincible" Sears & Roebuck?
