I recently raised the poll "Installer or ZIP-package?" here. Now it's time to take a summary out of the answers!

I noticed that some of you wanted to answer "both" but that was not the question ;) I was asking what you were using to install 7x on your hard disk. That's why "both" was not in the clickable range of answers :nod:  The results were kind of equal. 52% of you are using an installer, the rest is using the ZIP-package. So my conclusion here is that the installer needs to come back.

And it will.

However, plugins will not be installed on your system with the installer anymore. That out of three reasons:
+ Apophysis 7x64 doesn't support them
+ The plugin path is customizable
+ The amount plugins being integrated in the installer before is now integrated in Apophysis itself

Now you need to give me some time to get the installer creation software back up and then I'll compose an installer for you :)

I use the ZIP package. I find it more comfortable to paste the new versions than installing again. Usually installing a program over and over again leaves trash in the windows registry.

But, hey, that's just me. :)

I had the same issue and switched to the zip to avoid editing the registry or worse, forget to.
