Question about JUCE Visual Studio project and x64 architectu


#1

If I am not wrong, the JUCE project for Visual Studio does not have the x64 architecture as a possible target.
I think it would be useful to add it, 64 bit systems are getting quite common, what do you think?


#2

You can easily turn it on if you want to do a 64-bit build, can’t you?


#3

yes sure, was thinking about the opportunity for you to deploy an “official” x64 configuration together with the Win32 one


#4

The new jucer will be able to auto-generate build projects with any settings that you need, so there’s no point in me messing about with them before that’s ready.

(Jucer progress update: today I got to the point where the new jucer is now generating its own XCode project, in a nicely self-referential way!)

drooool


#6

I’d like to primarily do 64-bit builds. I was a bit confused by your answer above. Do you know – at the source code level – if the current source can be targeted to 64-bit builds (on VS2008)?

If so, I could just create a new configuration in VS2008 but then any save from Jucer 3 would lose that configuration, correct? So I’d have to choose between continued use of Jucer 3 or 64-bit?

And separate more complicated question: same thing for GCC (Xcode/Linux) builds (where a long is 64-bit)? Is the source 64-bit clean/ready?

I think my brain just stack-overflowed.

The code is 64-bit clean, of course - it has been for years. I’ve not yet added the option for a VS 64-bit build, but it’s just a flag that needs flipping, and I’ll do that soon.
