Unzip APUP.ZIP into said folder.
Run APUP.EXE; you will see a window listing possible downloads, check what's appropriate; click Next.
Wait - download could take a while - hope you have high-speed connection.
Run AUTOPATCHER.EXE when download is complete. Make selections.
You have NO NEED for any of the previous AutoPatcher files/downloads/etc.

--> Yes, it is best to start fresh with an empty folder. Extract the contents of the latest apup.zip to this folder.
(2)"other people saying they updated the August core..."
--> I suggested this once but APUP isn't setup for this...yet?,,last I heard???
(3)"I don't see how it is just an update"
-->It isn't an "update", it is an "Updater", for "AutoPatcher" ie: "AP"-AutoPatcher, "UP"-UPdater, my words here!!!
-->Run APUP the first time to essentially create your AutoPatcher program by selecting the programs you will
eventually update, ie: XP, 2K, Office 2007, and there after run apup.exe to keep AutoPatcher updated.
(4)"Do I need the old releases or is this a new complete release?"
-->No - see (1). It will be a "complete" release when you run "apup.exe", select the particular programs you want
to update, and then let "apup.exe" work it's magic ie: by collecting "ALL" the needed files to create a "complete"
(5)"I'm downloading the XP stuff and it's around 300MB"
-->I update 2K, XP, Office 2003, DotNet, DirectX, Extras, Office Addon...See Image
Hope this helps a bit...!

But what do you mean by running "on top" of an old release? Do you mean by updating from the old release first then running this version (from a different folder) can mess up the OS?
Anyway, thanks to the devs.
