Does anyone have any clever methods of telling if Windows is a 64 bit installation or 32 bit??
Now that we have both versions of some plug-ins it would be nice to install the right one automatically/programatically
from the command line:
wmic OS get OSArchitecture
So you can use that from Send Event, have it written to a text file and import the text file
MBS( "SystemInfo.Is64bitWindows" )
if you use the MBS Filemaker Plugin.
Pointer was a good one. Doesn't seem to work in XP but
wmic cpu get DataWidth /format:list
returns DataWidth = 32 or DataWidth = 64
one caveat with looking at the hardware: you may very well have Windows 32-bit installed on 64-bit hardware...
Indeed. but I also had a Win7 64 install that was an upgrade to XP that kept reporting Get(SystemVersion) as 5.1 in FileMaker not 6.1
Here is a response I've got today from 360Works:
You actually don't need to know the user's OS for using AutoUpdate. The 64-bit plugins are only meant for Custom Web Publishing. All FileMaker processes are 32-bit except for CWP, so you should continue to use the 32-bit ".fmx" plugins in all situations except when using CWP.
Hope this helps.
