Ran batch - got 30 Aug 2012 script - download OK. Test and report may be delayed - severe storm warning being mentioned on radio (thunder and lightening) - may lose power.
Did a quick check - everything looks great but: Microsoft Windows - Recommended updates is third item in List of Available items - problem - no items or submenus - is it empty on purpose?

Started AutoPatcher > no change in - Recommended Updates - no submenu or items; no Windows Update Agent located.
A bit later -
Explorer > AutoPatcher folder > modules > windows_noncritical.apm > opened this .apm to verify > found:
Title=Microsoft Windows - Recommended updates
Went to \modules\NonCritical folder > all files/folders in that folder included _seven_ in name - meaning none were applicable to XP (either version).
I must assume there are files/folders missing from this location.

It appears that you may be mixing up the directories so here is the layout
Explorer>APUP>modules>Windows XP x86>Critical....or Non Critical............or Components etc
each of these folders has a child folder holding the executables. In the Windows XP x86 folder you will find the module apms....critical....non critical etc. This holds true for Windows XP x64 as well..
Loked at my layout and there should be nothing in the recommended updates
Hope this sheds a little more on the subject

\Windows XP X64
\Windows XP x86
the above is my existing folder structure - I tried indenting the sub-folders but, for some reason, when I post it the indentation disappears

Looks right to me and the folder in question should be empty as no noncritical modules are common.
Have left the original folders in place for those that have more than XP x86 and XP x64 in their autopatcher.My testing ap is built on a flash drive and so only have five folders under the heading of modules...those being Microsoft Windows - Critical updates, Microsoft Windows - Updated Components, Windows XP x64, Windows XP x86, Windows Addons.....it looks so much cleaner this way..

Started AutoPatcher > List of available items >
Microsoft Windows - Recommended updates - includes a long list of Windows 7 items BUT name could be confusing as Microsoft Windows - Recommended Updates does not match APM.
In AutoPatcher\modules folder the APM in question is: windows_noncritical.apm and opening it you find:
Title=Microsoft Windows - Recommended updates.
I would suggest the Title be changed to Microsoft Windows - Non Critical Updates to match the APM.
Also, because this is a Win7 item only and because when AutoPatcher is run from with XP (either version) an empty menu item: Microsoft Windows - Recommended updates appears the following should be changed:
