Here you can download the current WACUP Preview build from March 11 2021 which is a snapshot of the work being done. As this is pre-release software there can be issues which can be reported in the preview discussion forum with all applicable information about how the issue happened and most importantly how to reproduce it so it can be fixed - your help is what makes the software better.
Installer Notes: It is best to install the WACUP preview into a separate directory (if applicable) which the installer will inform you about. The portable installer will do this by default whereas the normal installer provides a number of options depending on if there are prior installs present or not.
Supporting WACUP: There are a number of ways to support this project be it financially or otherwise. So if you like it then please do let others know about WACUP :)
Portable Installer Notes: This version of the installer includes everything the standard installer offers but only allows for creating &/or updating an existing portable WACUP install. It can also be useful for when you are not able to make a standard install (e.g. due to limited user access permission issues). This will also prevent the WACUP install created from attempting to integrate with the OS for things like file association handling to ensure that it is portable :) To uninstall an unmodified portable WACUP install then you can just delete the folder which will remove everything including it's settings & any custom data stored within that folder.
Note: Redistribution of the installers on alternative sites is not permitted and instead you should link to this page. If not then this makes it hard to otherwise get a true sense of download numbers & I probably should call out the sites that don't adhere by this request but the internet sucks at times!
Windows 7 or newer
CPU with SSE2 support
Winamp 5.666 patched - this will be installed if not already present on your behalf if you instruct the installer to do so or if you manually downloading the patched 5.666 installer or already have an existing copy in the download folder, it should be 10328598 bytes with a SHA256 of 5158D1E92FE476227E9BC739CD15FFF4E9E847D8598613A6AE220CE085E3A6FB
A working internet connection (see below for clarification)
Alternatively WINE 7.x or newer (running winetricks dxvk & setting it to use Windows 7 compatibility is recommended to avoid visualisation related crashes)
Windows 7 is the minimum version of Windows supported as this is a reasonable base level to support despite it & other versions of Windows having gone end of life versus development resources available (aka just myself).
A processor (CPU) which has SSE2 support will be required as even though most of the code created for WACUP will not be able to benefit from this processor feature, for certain aspects it will and that is why it's considered a requirement.
A working internet connection is required to allow the WACUP installer to download the Winamp 5.666 patched installer on your behalf or you can pre-download a copy of the Winamp 5.666 patched installer & place that in the same folder as the WACUP installer. Please note that some aspects which are selected in the installer may not be installed if there is no working internet connection though it shouldn't prevent the WACUP installer from continuing as long as the Winamp 5.666 patched installer is available to allow the WACUP installer to get the core files needed.
Note: When WACUP no longer has any core requirements for the Winamp 5.666 exe / plug-ins then an offline version of the WACUP installer will eventually be made available as it's not really viable for them to be included in the WACUP installer due to the fun of licensing even if it's related to an abandoned release of software.
False Positive Issues:
If you're having issues with downloading & running the WACUP installer due to it being blocked by your anti-virus / malware protection software then please see here for more information about commonly seen false positive detections & how you can resolve the issue if you're happy that it is a false positive (e.g. allowing it to be run & to gain the trust needed to allow it through such checks).
Alternatively there's numerous ways to contact me & let me know about the issue or have a chat to answer any questions you might have about the safety of using WACUP.
