  • Compiling for 64-bit Vista?

    I have a client who has switched to 64-bit Vista and cannot use my 32-bit console apps. Is there a way to compile for 64-bit Vista? I'm using 4.04 of the Console Compiler.

    Many thanks,
    Tom Brodhead

    There's nothing that prevent the 64bit OS to run a Win32 application. The errors may probably depend on the different (or now enforced) Vista security / permissions model.
    If you give more details about the kind of errors that show up, maybe someone can give some hints.

        To answer your question directly: No.

          Two things he might try.

          Right click on the EXE and click on property and click on Compatibility TAB, and try the different compatibility modes. XP 32 mode should work.

          Right click on the EXE and click on Run as Administrator if the above fail.
