Selection Program Patch Installation Instructions
- Download the patch and save it to
your desktop (this is the easiest place to locate it).

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.

- 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.
- Most likely this is all you will

you can delete the .exe file you saved to your desktop.

Instructions to resolve known issue
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.
- Search your windows/system on
Windows 9X or the windows/system32 directory on NT systems for a
file called patchw32.dll.
- 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.
- Important: Do not rename this
file if it is located in the Windows directory. Our program installs
patchw32.dll to the Windows directory.
- Once you have renamed the
patchw32.dll found in the Windows/System or Windows/System32
directory, the patch should run correctly.
Additional notes regarding
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
