64-bit version available for testing (Preview)

Post by radio42 » 27 Mar 2015 19:31

The first version of ProppFrexx ONAIR 64-bit is available here:
http://www.proppfrexx.radio42.com/downl ... te4000.zip

(a 32-bit version is available here: http://www.proppfrexx.radio42.com/downl ... te4000.zip)

NOTE: This is not an installer package, but a plain zip – to install it simply unzip the content to a new end empty folder (e.g. C:\PFOA64).

A reminder note:
A 64-bit application can only load 64-bit libraries (dll’s), as such only 64-bit VST versions (compatible with v2.4 hosts) are supported as DSPs (e.g. use the 64-bit VST version of Stereotool)!
- Winamp DSPs are NOT supported anymore (as they are all 32-bit)!
- The latest .Net Framework 4.5.2 needs to be installed (https://support.microsoft.com/kb/2901954)!
- Windows XP is not supported anymore (as the latest .Net Framework doesn’t support XP anymore).

To still support old 32-bit GPIO interfaces, this version now includes a new “ProppFrexx GPIOClient.exe” application – which will be launched automatically if enabled (see general settings, section ‘GPIO/Remoting’).
This is a 32-bit application, which hosts the following interfaces:
- Velleman IO, IO-Warrior, GamePort, D&R Airence, D&R Airlite
The mapping configuration of these interfaces is now also directly hosted/configured in that new “ProppFrexx GPIOClient” application.
The config files are stored in its AppUserData folder (e.g. C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\radio42\ProppFrexx GPIOClient\3.0)!
For backward compatibility you might copy existing mapping files from the ProppFrexx ONAIR AppUserData into this folder (the related files to copy are: *.iow, *.iov, *.gio, *.dra)!

NOTE: The ‘GPIO Extension Service’ must be enabled in order to use the above (see general settings, section ‘GPIO/Remoting’)!
By default this also automatically starts the “ProppFrexx GPIOClient” application (see ’GPIO Services’).
The ‘password’ to be used with the “ProppFrexx GPIOClient” application is always the same password as defined in the general settings, section ‘GPIO/Remoting’ for the ‘TCP RemoteControl Server’.
(the default is ‘ProppFrexx’)

Also note, that even it’s a 64-bit version, it will use any existing configuration, as the default AppUserData folder (e.g. C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\radio42\ProppFrexx ONAIR\3.0) is still the same!
So if you have already installed the (old) 32-bit version, you can both use back to back – but note, that both will access modify the same config folder!
In that case, you might want to create a backup of your AppUserData folder first (just to be sure).

Have fun…
