Hi,

I have converted my application in Visual Studio 2019 Community to 64 bit (x64), however when I create the setup file it defaults to 32 bit (x86). How do I tell InstallForge the file is a 64 bit application. ;)

Hello,

you can use the <ProgramFilesX64> path constant to make your application being installed to your desired location.

Just write "<ProgramFiles>\..\Program Files\<CompanyName>\<AppName>"
This will search the "Program Files (x86)" folder, will go up one folder (\..) and will search the "Program Files" folder.

It's what I Said in the 3rd post: Just use

Code: Select all

<ProgramFiles>\..\Program Files\your_company\your_app
It is working for me on the last version of the program.
