  • I already found the solution for other computer from internet that is set target platform of custom tool to x86 and it works :)

    But I still don't understand why the first computer can find my custom tool with target platform any CPU, since both have same win7 x64 only one using AMD and other is Intel i7 processor. Is there related with that ?
