  • Add new Condition/Flag for Windows systems that can only run 64-bit software

    macOS since mac Catalina (2019) can only run 64-bit applications under Windows. So, when there is a mixture of 64-bit and 32-bit modules in an SUF project, we need a 64-bit installer that skips (does not install) 32-bit modules, but does install 64-bit modules. On other systems it installs all the modules. I can identify the 32-bit modules and support files that should be skipped, but how do I tell SUF not to install them on 64-bit only systems? Does this need a new Condition?
    Thanks.

    Setup Factory is a tool for Windows platforms, and macOS is unsupported. If you run a x64 version of Windows in VMWare Fusion or VirtualBox on Catalina, then WOW64 would most likely be available unless you chose not to install this Windows component (as in some Server editions), so I am not exactly sure what you are asking.

    Perhaps it would be better building two installers, one native 64-bit setup for the customers with x64 Windows, and another one for those few still with a 32-bit version of the operating system. You might be able to do this with two build configurations of the same Setup Factory project.

      Hi Ulrich: thanks. Yes, more investigation reveals that if Windows is installed on a Mac running Crossover, then there is no problem with 32-bit Windows apps.
