Go Up to 64-bit Windows Application Development


If you use a 64-bit Windows development system: You can develop, run, and debug Win64 applications stand-alone, without being connected to another PC. However, you should consider using the Platform Assistant and a connection profile (the debugging solution described in this topic), which enables you to use the Deployment Manager.

If you use a 32-bit Windows development system: You must use remote debugging in order to run and debug your Win64 applications, which by definition can run only on a Win64 system. To run, debug or deploy a 64-bit Windows application, you need to have a live connection to a 64-bit Windows system.

Required Development System

To create cross-platform applications for the Win64 platform, your development system can be either of the following:

  • A PC that is running a 64-bit Windows operating system
  • A 32-bit development PC connected to a PC that is running a 64-bit Windows operating system

If You Have a 64-bit Windows Development System

If you are running the RAD Studio IDE on a 64-bit Windows development system, you can create, run, and debug your 64-bit application on your 64-bit Windows PC. Using the Platform Assistant and a connection profile is optional.

However, using the Platform Assistant and a connection profile has several advantages. For example, it facilitates debugging and allows you to use the Deployment Manager for deploying your applications.

If You Have a 32-bit Windows Development System

You need to use a remote 64-bit PC for running and debugging your Win64 application.

You can use either of the following solutions:

  • The old-style remote debugging solution:

Making the Connection (Using a 32-bit Windows System)

Typically, you connect a 32-bit Windows system to a 64-bit Windows system using any of the following:
