The new aqsis-setup-1.6.0.exe windows installer has a lot less features than previous versions. It does not register the AQSISHOME environment variable anymore and it also does not register .rib, .sl and .slx extensions anymore which were a great feature as they made it easy to compile shaders and to start renderings with a simple doubleclick. Looking at the source distribution, those features seems still be present in the distribution\win\nsis directory.
My environment is Windows Vista Ultimate 32 SP 2 (German)

    Thanks for the report.

    For Aqsis 1.6.0 we switched to a more automated installer script, which is part of our build system (CMake), though it's a little more limiting than our previous efforts.

    We plan to add the missing options/features for Aqsis 1.6.1.

     
  • You probably already know it, but just to make sure: there seems to be a problem also with the PATH variable not being updated properly for all users by the 1.6.0 Windows installer.
