Hi,

I have a question regarding creating releases for 32-bit and 64-bit systems using a single Wise script. Is there any way using one wise script I can be able to generate releases for 32-bit as well as 64-bit systems? The problem which I am facing right now is that I have created the releases for both but the default directory path does not come correctly while installing the package.

For e.g.:
For 32-bit application on 32-bit OS it should go in to say C:\Program Files\Appln Dir
For 64-bit application on 64-bit OS it should go in to say C:\Program Files\Appln Dir
For 32-bit application on 64-bit OS it should go in to say C:\Program Files (x86)\Appln Dir

I have above examples as features in my single wise script. The INSTALLDIR path changes dynamically even after setting in .MSI script using Set Directory/Set Property method.

Or is it better to have 2 separate scripts for 32-bit and 64-bit OS so that the variables such as INSTALLDIR won't have collisions for 32-bit as well as 64-bit systems?

Thanks,
AK

It won't work even if you have 2 separate scripts. WiseScript isn't fully compatible for 64 bit installs.
I mean, you can use WiseScript to create a 32-bit app which you can install on a 64-bit system but you can't create 64-bit app using WiseScript.
