Deployment to 32 bit and 64 bit systems (cablib.dll)

Oct 28, 2008 at 10:28 PM

This is a great and easy-to-use tool.  I assume that Cablib.dll creates a cab file (wsp file).  I added the command to call wspbuilder in the post-build event, and Cablib.dll for x64 systems works fine in development.  However, I have a deployment / build issue, I am developing on a 64 bit server, but the code is built on a 32 bit server.  And our SharePoint target servers will be both 32 and 64 bit systems.   

I am wondering if wspbuilder could just use one version of cablib.dll that will work for both system types instead of keeping renaming / copying the dll depending on the operating system.  Since VS makecab.exe generates a standard cab file, could cablib.dll do the same thing?

Any suggestions how I can deal with this? 

Thanks,
