View Full Version : Fault installing on Win 7 64bit on 64bit hw.

I have an MSI that runs fine on 32bit Windows 7 and seems to work fine when running with WoW64.

I have a customer that has downloaded and installed the application and is getting the following on Win 7 64bit with 64 bit hardware:

Stopped working

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: APPCRASH
Application Name: ChangeAide.exe
Application Version:
Application Timestamp: 4d209f95
Fault Module Name: KERNELBASE.dll
Fault Module Version: 6.1.7600.16385
Fault Module Timestamp: 4a5bdbdf
Exception Code: e053534f
Exception Offset: 0000b727
OS Version: 6.1.7600.
Locale ID: 2057

I'm using the express version to build a 32bit MSI. I am expecting that this 32bit version will be recognized as a 32bit version on a 64bit OS and install correctly.

Is this a correct assumption or is the professional version actually required?

NOTE: VB with VS 2005 along with a number of components from different vendors not checked for 64bit compatible versions.

Any thoughts or help appreciated!!

I afraid of InstallShield Express Edition doesn't support 64bits system.
