The unified installer will install all versions of OpenMPT supported by your system (x86 with SSE2, amd64, ARM, ARM64).
If you are upgrading from an older version, it might be a good idea to read the release notes first to learn about new features.
Open ModPlug Tracker runs on about every computer that has Windows 7 or later (or Wine 1.8 or later) installed. For more details, consult the system requirements.
32-bit or 64-bit, which one is for me?
On 64-bit systems, OpenMPT will install both the 32-bit and 64-bit version of OpenMPT and default to using the 64-bit version. This is generally the recommended version to use, but you may prefer using the 32-bit version if you are using lots of 32-bit VST plugins. In this case, the 64-bit version of OpenMPT may be considerably slower. In summary, here are the conditions under which you should use the 64-bit version:
- Your computer runs a 64-bit Windows edition.
- You use no VST plugins, or most of your plugins are available as 64-bit plugins.
- You need more than 4 GB of RAM for plugins and samples.
- Do not use the 64-bit version if you use a lot of 32-bit plugins (or vice versa), as this will slow down OpenMPT considerably!
- Do not extract different portable versions (e.g. x86 and x86-64) into the same folder.
It is recommended to use the installer provided above, as it also offers the possibility to associate module files with OpenMPT. However, if you prefer a portable zipped archive, those are also available:
