Hello all,

This version fixes a defect that did not handle ramp up events on RGB channels,  They ended up as solid on events.

New in this version.  When exporting combined the tool will now generate both xlights and conductor format files.

Is there a dummies version of how to get this loaded on the PC. I get " No installation of Python 2.7 found in registry. Be sure to enter pathname that places wxPython on the PYTHONPATH. Sorry not computer savy.

Hi Sebastian,

Did you install the wxPython linked at from the original thread referenced above?

Ah did you install Python first? sounds like the steps might just be out of order.

I had a similar issue last week, when trying to install, even though I have Python already installed on my machine.

+1  There needs to a way to tell what version we have downloaded.  I always recommend that the file name include the ver #.

I have made a habit of naming the download image with the version number.  In addition, I update the version string displyaed by help->about in each release. 

I will add a sticky that will always have the most recent version maintained.

Help about is fine, but if I have a downloaded version how do I tell what the version is without installing / running it.

You need to install wxpython per the instructions in the linked thread.
