Footnotes:
 
Apply as necessary.
 
(1) The *.tar.gz file will contain a ralusinstallpatch.sh file as well as the appropriate *.tar for the platform it's patching.
(2) Compressed file versions can be verified as correct by uncompressing the files using expand.exe command. (e.g. expand.exe -r bedrwiz.ex_ %TEMP% - the bedrwiz.ex_ will be decompressed as bedrwiz.exe in the %TEMP% folder.)
