setting cpu target type CLI/C++ RRS feed

  • Question


    I'm not sure if I'm posting in the correct place, but I have a assembly written in CLI/C++.  Using corflags I'm seeing the following:


    Version   : v2.0.50727
    CLR Header: 2.5
    PE        : PE32
    CorFlags  : 8
    ILONLY    : 0
    32BIT     : 0
    Signed    : 1


    so if I understand correctly that means anyCPU.  I want it to be for a 32-bit app so I want the 32BIT to equal 1.  I'm not sure how to do this.  In C# I can just change the /platform flag.  In my C++ project I thought I would just need to change the Target Machine (Configuration Properties->Linker->Advanced) but I've tried setting it to MachineX86 (/MACHINE:X86) but I still get the same results.  Am I missing something?

  • I already posted to this thread, let's try again.  The C++ linker isn't smart enough to set these flags correctly.  You can use the Corflags.exe utility in a post-build event to force them to the proper setting.
