    I know there used to be a website that had old software patches available
    and I can't seem to locate the address in my "Favorites" folder. A lot of
    software companies only support patches for the newest versions and I would
    like to find the site that has links for older versions. I visited the site
    a long time ago and can't remember the name or web address.

    Any help? Thanks.

    If you know the names of the files, you should look here:

    Thanks for the link! I have no idea how you found it because I followed
    the directions for patches on the website and couldn't find any old ones.
    Now if I had a clue as to which one is what patch. I know I had a 8.01
    patch for Print Artist and one for Master Cook and Trophy Bass. I'll figure
    it out. Thanks again.

    You're welcome. Google is your friend.

    The first letters of the patch may be a clue. Eg.

    pa402.exe or pa82updt.exe for Print Artist
    tbass101.exe and tbass4update.exe for Trophy Bass

    etcetera.
