I would like to be able to support installing 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the same product on one machine.
But how do I handle shortcuts on a machine that has both 32 and 64 bit versions of the product installed?
I know I will have to rename the shortcuts so that they don't overwrite each other but what about the file associations of my shortcuts? My application's extension ends in .dbr and I create a dbr file association in the registry so that any .dbr file will be opened by dbr.exe. How will it know to use the 32-bit version of my exe versus the 64-bit version? :confused:
