Hi,

Is there anywhere that describes the platform suppport in details? We are particular interested to find out the support statement for Windows and Linux running on AMD64 and IA-64.

Regards,

Sam.

Installshield X can build native launchers for the IA-64 version of Windows.

I don't know very much about the AMD64 architecture, but I do believe that it should be capable of handling 32 bit executables.

As far as Linux goes, the launcher created is for the x86 platform only.

However, the Generic Unix platform pack generates a UNIX platform independent shell script that launches the installer. This should run on Linux and UNIX on architectures that have a Java Virtual Machine.
