Changing from 32-bit to 64-bit MinGW

Do you have a question about makefiles, a compiler or IDE you are using and need to know how to set it up for wxWidgets or why it doesn't compile but other IDE's do ? Post your questions here.

Changing from 32-bit to 64-bit MinGW

Post by ColleenKobe » Thu Jun 07, 2018 9:58 pm

I am currently working in the following environment:

* MinGW, 32 bit version
* wxWidgets, originally compiled with MinGW-32.
* CodeLite version 12.0.3
* Building in Windows 10 Test Mode
* Target platform = Windows 10
* Developing on a 64-bit Windows computer

I now need to change my development platform to produce a 64-bit executable.

To do that, I have downloaded MinGW, the 64-bit version.

My question is, do I need to recompile wxWidgets, since I originally compiled it in the 32-bit version?

Thanks.

Colleen

Yes. One cannot mix 32- and 64-bit code for obvious reasons.
