-**1536331502_PinUPSystemInstall_v1_3_6_Final.zip**+The FIRST part is PinUP Player, this must be setup and fully running FIRST prior to the installing the optional PinUP Popper FrontEnd Menu.
  
-The install ​is usually not current with latest fixes and new features. Check out Release Notes/​Change Log for latest files and updates. These updates should be applied AFTER the above install is complete.+So the first step once you have vpx/​emulators/​freezy all working on your vpin, is to download ​and install ​the PinUP Player.
  
-[[:​release_notes|]] +Once that is fully working and you can play PinUP PuP-Packs then you install ​the Popper FrontEnd Files if you wish to use it as your FrontEnd, it is not required to install the Popper Frontend files if you only wish to use the PinUP Player and PuP-Packs, but trust us… its worth it!! You can even try Popper alongside other installed frontends as it won't 'mess-around'​ with your other frontends or emulators if you want to give it a go!
