Please carefully read the release notes and the installation procedure below.

Installation Procedure:

- Before proceeding with the installation make sure that you have your V7.0 Keys, since v6 keys will not be working with this version.
- Users that are running Pyramix v7.0 Beta or RC version can simply perform an upgrade to Pyramix v7.0 Release.
- Windows XP users: Due to some new installer requirements you will have to update to XP-SP3 in order to install Pyramix v7.0.
- Users that are running Pyramix v6.2x can perform an upgrade but Merging strongly recommends that you remove the currently installed Pyramix version prior to installing Pyramix v7.0. Merging also recommends that MassCore users remove the present runtime, by going to the Windows “Add or Remove Program” and removing the “Interval Zero RTX runtime”, make sure that you Reboot afterwards. Follow up with the Pyramix v7.0 installation, note that you will have to install the new MassCore Runtime from the MT Security Settings (MassCore tab) and reboot afterwards.

- For users with Pyramix and VCube installed on the same system, it is mandatory that you upgrade to VCube 3.0.8 to go along side this Pyramix v7.0.8

- Warning: Due to the Library format changes if downgrading to a Previous Pyramix version (e.g. v6.x) the v7.0 Library format will not be compatible, the same applies in part to the Pyramix v7.0 projects. See Release Notes for all details.

- Note on new faster Save process:

At project opening we now will decompress the project .pmx file into multiple files (.pmx, .pml, .Playlist.pml, .DefaultLibrary.pml and .Composition.pml) those files will only be all visible in Windows Explorer when the project is open in Pyramix. At save time we will re-zip those files into a single .pmx file and at close we will remove those decompressed temporary files.

There remains the possibility of reverting to the old v6.2 save mode (applies to libraries) see Release Notes under the “Tips” section for all details.
