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?

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?
