I have compiled a few hotfixes for the recent 15C release:

+ Fixed the MT renderer - was not properly reading transform opacity values
+ Fixed render log - was showing "32 bit integer" still
+ Changed the default settings so they comply with UAC-enabled systems
+ Fixed loonie variation code - had potential division by zero
+ Added scripting back in 32 bit-version - waiting for TMS to deliver 64 bit-support
+ Added a few one-click helper scripts to simplify things like settings reset and running 7X lite

Download binaries (32 and 64 bit)

Neither binaries.zip nor 7x.15c.zip from the homepage appear to have an installer. While I can run it fine as a standalone program, I'd appreciate some guidance on this.

Cheers!

I have to rewrite the installer for 7x. That takes a while. Until then - no installer!

Ah :) IMHO, newbies are likely to get confused. Perhaps a note somewhere on the homepage might help?

Thanks for the reply.

Hmm Apo has been installed over a ZIP package for ages. I'm pretty sure it'll do :nod: Also, you don't really need to install 2.02 or so before 7X so unzipping and you're good to go is cool :nod:

I think I'm just going to wait for the final version with your installer :relax: :)

Want my honest opinion? I am still debating whether to create a new installer :hmm: The responsivity has been...rather low. People like to use the ZIP pack more.

:ohnoes: :no: :ignore::P

Why do you suppose they like ZIPs more? Maybe it's because it's easier to test the hotfixes? Or is it because of the uninstall-first-before-upgrading step with the installer? Perhaps you could have a poll :)

Personally, I prefer installers in _general_ because of the following:
* I do not have to worry about the upgrade process. I know that my preferences are going to be retained.
* I like the fact that all paths are consistent and that the program is going to be installed within "Program Files". I dare say that this is also highly beneficial when solving bugs.
* I don't have to deal with the hassle of creating start menu or desktop short-cuts.
* If I want to clear up space or clean up Windows, I just go to the program manager and nuke stuff that I don't need. (Not that this is ever going to happen here :D)

IMHO, besides portability and perhaps the inherent option of having multiple versions of an application on the same PC, I can't see how ZIP packages can appear to be friendlier than installers. That said, I'd like to have both options available ;)

This has probably becoming annoyingly long now; so I'll stop. Thanks for listening :)

You know what? A poll is exactly what I will do.

I got an error last night, while running the 32 and the 64 versions (the same error) but I still can't duplicate the error so I can send you. It happened while trying to make a "undo" but it was not the already known "don't have undo file". If I manage to make Apo glitch again on that, I will let you know.
Thanks for your hard work!
