Aerofin Selection Program Patch Installation Instructions

  1. Download the patch and save it to your desktop (this is the easiest place to locate it).
  2. Be sure that you download the correct version patch. If you are a Rep or OEM, please do not download the Standard version patch, it will not work. You will receive the following error message. 
     

  3. Double click the icon to start the installation.
  4. Follow the prompts. It will find the Aerofin.exe on your system, most likely in the Program Files/Aerofin directory. Just click OK when asked if this is the file you wish to update, if it states Program Files/Aerofin/Aerofin2000 then select no and the patch will continue looking for the correct version to update.
  5. Most likely this is all you will have to do. However, if you get an error message that states the patch.exe file is the wrong version, please see the instructions below.
  6. Once the installation is complete, you can delete the .exe file you saved to your desktop.
  7. When you start the Aerofin program it will show the latest version on the splash screen. You can also access this screen from the help menu, just select about.

Instructions to resolve known issue with patch.exe.

If you receive an error message that states that the patch.exe file is the wrong version you will need to take the following steps before the patch will update your program. 

  1. Search your windows/system on Windows 9X or the windows/system32 directory on NT systems for a file called patchw32.dll.
  2. Once the file has been found you will need to rename it to something. I suggest patchw32.old. You can always rename it back once the patch has been installed.
  3. Important: Do not rename this file if it is located in the Windows directory. Our program installs patchw32.dll to the Windows directory.
  4. Once you have renamed the patchw32.dll found in the Windows/System or Windows/System32 directory, the patch should run correctly.

Additional notes regarding patchw32.dll.

This error occurs because we are using a third party software to install the patch. This patch software is used by hundreds of other software programs to develop patches too. The patchw32.dll is required for the patches to run correctly; however, it must be the same version as the one we used to develop the patch. We install our version of the patchw32.dll to the Windows directory and not the Windows\system directory. When applying a patch, the patch will look in the Windows system directory first for this file and if it is found will attempt to run the patch. This will cause the error. Once you rename the file to something else, it will then look in the Windows directory and find the patchw32.dll that we used and the patch will install successfully.
