New in XE6! Packages for C++ 64-bit Windows

Posted by on in Blogs
In case you missed it, XE6 delivers package support for the 64-bit compiler for Windows. As an example, in this post I will rebuild the C++ samples package and add one of the controls to a 64-bit C++ Windows VCL applications. First, we'll open the project group found under C:\Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\14.0\Samples\CPP\VCL\Controls

Now that we can build this package with the 64-bit compiler, we can comment out the compiler output #error for Win64.

Next, we add the 64-bit platform to our project target.

Select 64-bit Windows as the target, and build:

Success! Ok, now we can use it in a project.

    Great stuff! I've been waiting for this ever since 64-bit C++ was first released. Glad to see it made it :)
