Installer for 64bit machine
Posted 28 January 2008 - 13:38
I have followed the below mentioned steps:
1. The value "x64" has been entered in the platform field of the Template Summary property.
2. The Page Count Summary property must be set to the integer 200.
3. Each 64-bit Windows Installer component has been set with the property "64-Bit Component" to yes.
Finally when I build the install project I was ended with following error:
"Error: -5008: Intel64 must be specified in the template of the Summary Stream"
When I tried to change the "Template Summary property" value from "x64" to "intel64" build was succesful but i get "Error: -1633 This installation package is not supported by this processor type. Contact your product vendor."
Please help me out to resolve the above mentioned error.

We are thinking of delivering our product in 64 bit version. After some analysis, i am in confusion about the best approach.
Following were my findings
- Since a package has to be targeted for single platform, we cannot have single installer for native support on both 32 and 64 bit machines. Hence decided to have 2 different installers by having different Template Summary entries.
-Even thought of having same ism with different features for 32 & 64 bit with appropriate release flags set during build time. But in this case, we will hit with problem of INSTALLDIR can be pointed to either program files 32 or 64 bit and cannot be modified for each release, in one of the thread, MichaelU mentioned this can be solved thru ISWI or msi automation.
I hope you might have a better option for this requirement. Please share your ideas and suggestions. It will help me a lot, any help will be much appreciated.
Thanks in anticipation,
