Newbie needs help with 64bit cross-compiling RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello!

    Does anybody have easy instructions how to recompile exsisting file so it works with 64bit windows xp under WOW64
    I use Visual Studio 9 2008 PRO.

    My goal is this:

    I have a file Launcher.exe and it runs only in 32bit Windows, I need to cross-compile it so
    I can run it under 64 bit Windows.

    Any help?

    thank you up front

  • You can directly run the 32bit application under windows 64bit versions. Windows 32-bit on Windows 64-bit (WoW64) is an emulation layer that enables 32-bit Windows applications to run seamlessly on 64-bit Windows platforms. For more details, please visit Best Practices for WOW64.
