Overview
WINDEV allows you to automatically generate and install a 64-bit application.
How to proceed?

Creating an executable in 64-bit mode

To create an executable in 64-bit mode:
  1. Select "Workshop .. Executable .. Generate the Windows executable (64 bits)".Expand among the quick access buttons. In the "Other generations" menu, select "Generate the Windows 64-bit executable (.exe)".
  2. Follow the different steps of the wizard for executable creation.
Note: If you are using a project configuration specific to the 64-bit mode, the executable and all the files required by the executable to operate will be generated in a specific directory.

Installing a 64-bit application

To install a 64-bit application, WINDEV proposes two modes:
  • Installing the 64-bit application only
    This mode is used to generate the setup program for the 64-bit application only. The creation of the setup program is performed via "Workshop .. Create the setup procedure" (the 64-bit configuration of the application must be selected). The wizard for creating the setup procedure is automatically started (see Wizard for creating the setup program).
    Installing the 64-bit application only
    This mode is used to generate the setup program for the 64-bit application only. To create the setup program, on the "Project" pane, in the "Generation" group, expand "Setup procedure" (the 64-bit configuration of the application must be selected). The wizard for creating the setup procedure is automatically started (see Wizard for creating the setup program).
    Versions 22 and later
    Note: The setup program of the 64-bit application is a 64-bit program.
    New in version 22
    Note: The setup program of the 64-bit application is a 64-bit program.
    Note: The setup program of the 64-bit application is a 64-bit program.
  • Installing the application in 32-bit or 64-bit mode (with adaptation according to the deployment system)
    WINDEV allows you to create a unique setup containing both the "32-bit" application and the "64-bit" application. The version to install will be automatically selected according to the operating system of the user. Let's take a look at this option.

Combined 32-bit/64-bit setup

To perform a combined 32-bit/64-bit setup:
  1. Generate the executable and the 32-bit setup procedure.
    • Display (if necessary) the 32-bit configuration (via the project explorer or via "Project .. Project configurations .. Manage the configurations"). Display the 32-bit configuration if necessary:
      • from the project explorer.
      • on the "Project" pane, in the "Project configuration" group, click "Manage the configurations".
    • Generate the executable and the 32-bit setup procedure ("Workshop .. Create the setup procedure"). Generate the executable and the 32-bit setup procedure: click among the quick access buttons.
  2. Generate the executable and the 64-bit setup procedure.
    • Display (if necessary) the 64-bit configuration (via the project explorer or via "Project .. Project configurations .. Manage the configurations"). Display the 64-bit configuration if necessary:
      • from the project explorer,
      • on the "Project" pane, in the "Project configuration" group, click "Manage the configurations".
    • Generate the executable and the 64-bit setup procedure ("Workshop .. Create the setup procedure"). Generate the executable and the 64-bit setup procedure (click among the quick access buttons.
  3. To generate the combined setup, setup "Workshop .. Generate a combined 32-bit/64-bit setup". The following window is displayed:
    Generate the combined setup: on the "Project" pane, in the "Generation" group, expand "Setup procedure" and select "Generate a combined 32-bit/64-bit setup". The following window is displayed:
  4. Specify the paths of the different setup programs (WDF files of 32-bit and 64-bit setups). If these files are not created or updated, you have the ability to re-generate the different setups.
    Versions 17 and later
    Note: The help about the new features displayed during the setup can be modified.
    New in version 17
    Note: The help about the new features displayed during the setup can be modified.
    Note: The help about the new features displayed during the setup can be modified.
  5. In the next step, specify the options for generating the combined setup:
    • single generation directory.
    • directory cleared before generation.
    • directory for creating the combined setup.
    • Versions 19 and later
      compression format of combined setup (Zip or 7Z).
      New in version 19
      compression format of combined setup (Zip or 7Z).
      compression format of combined setup (Zip or 7Z).
  6. Validate.
  7. If you have requested the generation of setup programs, validate the different wizards for generating the executable and the setup program.
  8. The combined setup program is generated.
Notes:
  • The combined 32/64-bit setup is not available for the multisite setups.
  • The history of versions is not supported.
    Versions 20 and later
    The history of versions defined for each setup program is supported: you have the ability to go back to a previous version of the software.
    New in version 20
    The history of versions defined for each setup program is supported: you have the ability to go back to a previous version of the software.
    The history of versions defined for each setup program is supported: you have the ability to go back to a previous version of the software.
  • The signature of setups is not possible in combined setup mode.
    Versions 20 and later
    The signature of combined setups is available: each setup can be signed.
    New in version 20
    The signature of combined setups is available: each setup can be signed.
    The signature of combined setups is available: each setup can be signed.
  • The setup program of the 32-bit and 64-bit applications is a 32-bit program.
    Versions 22 and later
    The setup program of the 32-bit application is a 32-bit program. The setup program of the 64-bit application is a 64-bit program.
    New in version 22
    The setup program of the 32-bit application is a 32-bit program. The setup program of the 64-bit application is a 64-bit program.
    The setup program of the 32-bit application is a 32-bit program. The setup program of the 64-bit application is a 64-bit program.
  • The combined 32/64-bit setup can use different and custom setup programs. All you have to do is select the "WDF" file corresponding to the requested setup program.
Minimum required version
  • Version 16

Restriction for Media type
Both generations must use "Single Directory" media type. No self-extracting executable!
