I have a problem switching from a 32-bit to a 64-bit project. I basically made a copy of a 32-bit project and I now want to convert it to a 64-bit one.

I have changed the template summary to x64 but my main problem is now that I cannot see the 64-bit predefined folders ([CommonFiles64Folder], "Programfiles64Folder]). How do I make them appear in the list under "Show Predefined Folder"?

Thanks.

Use the Direct Editor view to add the 64-bit folder entries to the Directory table. Probably the easiest way to get the appropriate values for the various fields is to copy them from the Directory table of a new Basic MSI project.

I believe that once you do that, you'll see the 64-bit predefined folders.

I hope that helps.

That worked perfectly.

Thanks!
