what 64x or x86 installation should I run


Recommended Posts

I developing simple script for one program to do the automatic clicks.

Now I developed on xp and win 7, but on win 10 gives me error.

But the point for me to make it clear and not having basic mistake
with choosing x64 and x86 system.

So if I choose x64 system, does it going to work on x86?
when compiling do I need to check or uncheck x64 compatibilities?

Right now I'm installing new autoit v3 full install and it ask me what version to do like:
- use native x64 tools by default
- Use x86 tools by default (recommanded for compatibility)

I assume I should use x86, because this is for 32bit machines?


I know those are the basic questions of building the application for windows or any OS,
but I didn't do any of this and if someone can give me information, just to do point,
use always that or this, it would be great!

The answer is literally given to you when installing autoit:

ok so x86 and that is 32bit will work on 64bit too?

Yes with one notable exception. If you are running the script in a Windows PE environment (e.g., for deploying OS images), Windows PE x64 does not have WoW (Windows on Windows) execution, so an x86 executable can only run in WinPE x86 and not in WinPE x64.

This is not commonly done but I wanted to post here in case someone who does use WinPE comes along and reads this and needs the information. There is also the consideration that if you need to write to certain keys in the registry a 64-bit exe is the best way to go, but that's a more advanced topic.

x86 is the most widely compatible.

Always carry a towel.

      Heres a function for searching for a bitmap within another bitmap. The heart of it is written assembly (source included) and working pretty quick I feel. I have included an example which is pretty basic and should be easily enough for anyone to get the concept. 
      You will be given a small blue window that will take a screencapture of that size:

       
      It will then take a full screenshot and highlight all locations that it found

      Please let me know if you have any issues or questions. Thanks!

      As documented here, it is possible to bypass registry redirection when running a 32bit application on a 64bit Windows installation, using HKLM64 or HKCR64. I quote:
       
       
      In this thread, >this feature's existence is denied.

      Also, if this feature exists and works, does it work on both production and beta? And can I also specificy HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE64 and HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT64 instead of HKLM64 and HKCR64?
