Hacking patch files for the DVM

Blog Post created by mkauffman on Mar 25, 2016

This was fun. A developer ran across the "Unconnected sockets not implemented" issue in their Q4 2015 DVM. We have a patch for that for the Q4 2015 release, but because the DVM has a slightly different Learn version number, 9.1.201510.1171702 instead of 9.1.201510.1171621, all you need to do is include the DVM's in the list of compatible versions in the patche's bbpatch.mf file. You download the patch, instead of applying it directly from our repo, modify your downloaded version, then apply the modified version. I've described the process in more detail in Solution to Unconnected sockets not implemented in a Q4 2015 DVM
