The Patch File table is displayed if any patches have been processed when Foxhound is started.

The Patch File column contains the unique file names of patches that have been read and stored in the rroad_patch table. Each patch file is read only once, but it may be applied more than once.

The Stored At column is when the file was read and stored in the rroad_patch table.

The Applied OK? column is Y if the patch was successfully applied; otherwise it is N.

Note that when the Mini-Restore process is run, or the Foxhound is re-installed to upgrade the data from an existing copy of the same build, any Applied OK? value of Y will be set to N to force previous patches to be re-applied.

The Applied At column is when the patch was successfully applied. This timestamp will change and the Stored At will remain the same when a patch is re-applied after a Mini-Restore or Data Upgrade with the same build number.

The Status column describes what happened when the patch was processed. Patches with Applied OK = Y will have Status = "Patch applied OK" and may be re-applied after a Mini-Restore or Data Upgrade with the same build number.

Patches with Applied OK = N and a non-empty Status value are failures and will not be re-applied.

Patches with Applied OK = N and an empty Status value have not yet been applied at all, successfully or unsuccessfully... this condition is not expected.
