The patch may be updated periodically to incorporate new minor bug fixes. Only minor testing is done after each update. Conceivably, new, undetected, bugs may be introduced. So back up your existing GTAPAgg folder before installing the patch.

To install the patch

First, print out this instruction page. Then ...

(a) Click on the globe icon at bottom right of GTAPAgg to find your GTAPAgg folder (where GTAPAgg.EXE is located). At the same time check that you have version 6 or above of GTAPAgg, with build date August 2002 or later.
(b) Close GTAPAgg
(c) Make a backup or zip of your entire GTAPAgg folder [but not of subdirectories below it].
(d) Download the file AGGPATCH.ZIP (about 15.5 MB) into your GTAPAgg folder.
(e) Some files in your GTAPAgg folder that you wish to replace may be read-only. Clear this setting by opening a command prompt in your GTAPAgg folder, and typing:

 attrib -R *.*

(f) Unzip AGGPATCH.ZIP into the GTAPAgg folder (overwriting some existing files).
(g) Start GTAPAgg and try it out. Clicking on the globe icon at bottom right should indicate GTAPAgg version 8.03.

If you have a problem, you can restore previously existing files using the backup you made at step (c).

This patch updates GTAPAgg.EXE and some other generic programs. It does not contain GTAP data or licence files. The following files are NOT included in AGGPATCH.ZIP: gtapagg.lic default.lic sets.har default.prm default.agg basedata.hrx prmwgt.har tstrade.har gsdvole.har
