If you are running an EPO 3.6.1 server use the framepkg from this to install on new agents not an old one and DO NOT try to overwrite a newer EPO with an old copy.
By the sound of it you are getting agent updates from EPO to the latest version anyway so get yourself a framepkg from the server to do any new installs.
If you have screwed up the agent then remove it using the forceinstall option previously specififed and install the latest version after a reboot.
Your issues with autoupdate are due to dll failures because you have tried to apply an old version and broken the newer agent.
In short please read the entire EPO manual as you seem to be trying to apply actions that you have no training in and have not even read the manual for.
