The Rapture3D OpenAL driver runs on Microsoft Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7.
The Rapture3D Ambisonic Player runs on Microsoft Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7.
The Rapture3D Ambisonic Playback DirectShow filter does not work with version 12 of Windows Media Player, which ships with Windows 7. You can still use the Rapture3D Ambisonic Player or another DirectShow-compatible media player.
Please check your PC meets the following requirements:
Intel Pentium IV CPU or better.
100MB of free disk space.
Internal network card.
A working DirectSound-compatible sound card with up-to-date drivers. (And, if you want to use ASIO with the "Advanced" edition, a working ASIO-compatible sound card with up-to-date drivers.)
Internet Connection Required
The "User" and "Advanced" editions of Rapture3D available from this website require an Internet Connection for license activation and verification. We don't really like this, but we can't think of a better way to discourage piracy! Please don't hack our code, it's taken a lot of effort to get it this far...
Successful license verification isn't required every time you use Rapture3D, but it is needed during installation and needs to succeed once every couple of weeks to keep the license fresh.
The license can be "revoked" to remove it from one machine so it can be moved on to another. You should also do this if you're updating your system in case the machine appears to have changed identity.
You'll need administrator permissions while installing Rapture3D. It won't install properly using a "restricted" account.
