AVG creating bootable USB drive

I tried to created a bootable USB drive for AVG by following the instructions below :
To create a USB flash drive variant of AVG Rescue CD, you will need to do the following:
1- Extract the archive downloaded from AVG web directly on the removable USB flash drive. It has to be extracted in the root folder of the disk - do not use a subfolder.
2- Run the extracted makeboot.bat batch file. When started it will overwrite the boot record. Make sure you are using the desired USB flash drive, otherwise it can make your Windows un-bootable!
3- In the opened window press any key to prepare the USB flash drive.
4- After this process is finished (message will be displayed) you can close the window.
When I downloaded the specified AVG program to my USB and extracted it, I couldn't find the file named :makeboot.bat (as stated in the quote above),,,I found a file called : setup.exe
I just want to confirm if I am following the right procedure
