[Solved] 64 bit Standalone install DIR

Post by OzBrickie » Fri Sep 07, 2018 11:15 pm

Why does the 64 bit standalone install to c:\Program Files(x86) by default?

Because the 64-bit standalone version is primarily about the 64-bit Java wich is included in it. The UMS itself is compiled always as 32-bit.

@valib That's incorrect. Java code is bitness agnostic. This is just because of a lazy installer implementation.

Our 64-bit build is a hybrid of 64 and 32 so it is put in the (x86) for now. When we remove our 32-bit dependencies eventually that can change. It doesn't actually make a difference though - the 64-bit parts of the app will run in 64-bit mode no matter where they are
