Patch Configuration Failure - "Draft Download Failed"
You are trying to deploy patches of Microsoft/other vendors. However Patch Configuration fails with error message: "Draft - Download Failed".

- Proxy might not have been configured. (or) Authentication provided in the proxy settings does not have necessary privileges to download EXE files.

- Upgrade the Desktop Central Server in the existing computer if your build number is earlier to 70107. Visit Download and install to upgrade to the latest hotfix.
