|Download from here or another trusted site:|
Store the download in a folder on your hard drive. I use a C:\Techdiv\Battlefield1942\FHSW folder.
Rename the folder FHSW0.611. Decompress the files in the download there.
Move the existing FHSW folder to this location. Rename the folder FHSW0.61.
Move or copy the FHSW0.611 folder to the active EAGames location. Rename the folder FHSW.
Open 2 Windows Explorers. In one, navigate to the active FHSW folder \levels. In the other, navigate to the old FHSW folder now called FHSW0.61.
Copy the files in the \levels folder in FHSW0.61 to the \levels folder in the active FHSW. DO NOT OVERWRITE FILES (should be 136 that are NOT overwritten).
This should copy all the mappack files as well as the other custom maps downloaded from Kabu and its affiliate sites (which I have).
Connect to the server. You should not have a problem.

|Thanks for posting this. There is a slightly simpler alternative to achieve the same result (update FHSW 0.61 to 0.611 while keeping all custom maps):|
Optional: copy Battlefield 1942\Mods\FHSW to a place outside of the Battlefield 1942 folder, if you want to have a backup;
Open FHSW0611Client.rar (I recommend 7-Zip; WinRAR fails to extract from this archive), open FHSW0611Client and extract the FHSW folder to Battlefield 1942\Mods, overwriting all the files in the existing FHSW folder.
Open Battlefield 1942\Mods\FHSW\Archives\ and delete standardmesh_001.rfa and texture_001.rfa
