Notes about the PATCH file extension:
Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.
The PATCH file type is primarily associated with 'Elonex ONEt+' by Elonex.
An XAP file controls how new applications are installed on the Elonex comptuer; a PATCH file controls updates.

Other applications associated with file type PATCH:
- General Patch FileIn most cases a patch file either runs on its own (e.g., under UNIX you can set any file type to be executable so this would then be a script that would patch a particular installation of something) or is used as a data file by some other program that does the patching (e.g., an install program or the like). You need to read the manual for the particular program you are trying to patch to find out exactly how it accomplishes this. There are no general instructions for applying a patch. The text/x-diff MIME type applies to patch files that represent a summary difference between two files. The Mime types used with this association are: application/octet-stream, application/x-patch, text/x-diff.
