I have made an installer for Apophysis 7X 15C available at xyrus-worx.org
Please be aware that this installer is for Microsoft Windows only
. It comes in two versions: for the 32 bit and the 64 bit version of Apophysis 7X 15C. The two versions can be installed side-by-side. Even in a single folder (but be careful - you might not want to uninstall the 32 bit version if you have the 64 bit version in the same folder so I recommend keeping the folders separate)
Unlike for the ZIP-package, 32- and 64 bit version do not come in a single file!
Currently, the german, italian and chinese language packs are shipped with the installer. The other language packs are outdated and for the vanilla version 7x15 only.
The 32 bit-installer offers you to install a collection of DC-plugins as well as two sample scripts. Please mind that upon uninstallation, these plugin .DLL-files will be removed
even if they were there before. This also applies to scripts and other files. That's why you should not
install Apophysis 7x over an existing version in the same folder. Choose a new folder or backup the old version first.
The installer includes the hotfix release #7 but future hotfix releases will not be included with the installer. A new installer is uploaded only on major releases (15D? 16?) so that a hotfix release is more like a "patch" and needs to be installed manually. The approach is the same as for 2.02 as the major release and 2.09 as the minor release:
1) Install Apophysis with the latest installer
2) Download the latest hotfix/patch if available and copy Apophysis7X.exe or Apophysis7X64.exe into the install folder
PS: A hotfix #8 seems likely because there is one bug remaining; apart from that, no other patch releases are planned. You are safe to consider this installer version the "final" 7x15C with a minor bug in the multithreaded renderer (known problem with "noise" and "crop"-variations)
