All a bit new to HAP+, so forgive the potentially silly question, but having downloaded the upgrade ZIP file, how do I install it? Do I just extract the ZIP into the same location, overwriting the existing files? Do I need to do anything in IIS before/after copying the files over?

Generally an upgrade is as simple as unzipping the upgrade files over the top of the original.
What i would advise however is to make a backup of your entire HAP folder before you do it - that way, you can always revert back to that version if there is a problem.
(I have installed HAP twice on my server, once in a folder called HAP and once in a folder called BETA. I always try my updates on the BETA folder before upgrading my main folder which means there are a lot less surprises!)

I like that idea, thanks. So, you have two folders and two sites in IIS, right?

Yep. I even created two Applications in IIS. Bear in mind that your second one wont be using the standard names that Nick recommends in his instructions (i.e. your 2nd beta one is not installed in a "supported" way), though i have never had any problems - HAP is actually very versatile!

Thanks Matt, I've just done that now.
This is odd, though. I created HAP2, and everything was working fine so I extracted the ZIP file into HAP, and the formatting went funny. I deleted the contents of HAP and copied HAP2 into it, and it worked fine again. Any ideas?
