What are the options available for creating MSPs? Freeware solutions preferred... if there is any. For instance if you have an in-house developed app and you want to release a patch for it.

I don't know any freeware that will create patches.

IMV, in-house apps should use self-updating techniques but then that depends so much on the skill level of the developers.

That's some good stuff. Thanks for the info. I haven't had a need yet really to create any MSPs but if I do I'd like to be ready.
