How To...

How can I simoultanously build Windows 32-bit, 64-bit and OSX files?

Sisulizer 3 comes out with capacities to build 32-bit, 64-bit Windows and OSX output files for this same source in Sisulizer project. Currently this is possible only for latest Delphi/FireMonkey version, because both WIN32, WIN64 and OSX binaries created by Delphi compiler contains the same identical resources. For this reason you do not need to add separated sources for each platform. Just add Windows 32-bit file as source to Sisulizer project.

However, if you want to build WIN64 and/or OSX version of localized file, you need to add appropriated exe as platform files in your source properties. For example if you want to build localized 32 and 64 bit versions of sample.exe for 32-bit version of sample.exe added as source to Sisulizer project, you need add 64-bit version of sample.exe file as platform file. You can do it in the following way:

  • Go to “Project”, then to “Edit Source” sub-menu and select your source.
  • Next, in opened source properties dialog go to “Platform files” tab and add appropriated versions of your source file. Here is example screenshot:

When scanning and building, Sisulizer treats platform files just like the main file. So if you have WIN32 as main file and WIN64 and OSX32 as platform files, Sisulizer scans and build three files on each run. Solution implemented to Sisulizer allows on adding next platforms in future, when programming environments developers will release it.

If you want to check, how it works in “real live”, open Sisulizer, go to “File” menu and select “Open sample” menu item. next, open FireMonkey/Converter folder and open SLP in this folder.
