I like PowerBasic 10!
« on: October 12, 2011, 02:33:49 PM »
Have just finished another small project with PowerBasic.
It's amazing how bugfree and reliable this compiler is.

Having said this, there are new mountains to climb with the help of PB 10 (and for x64 actually PureBasic x64).

Let's go ...

Theo, I would also love to see a PowerBASIC x64 version... but I'm very curious... just what project(s) did you find required x64?

Not to be nosy, but can you show us some example?

Jim,

The most obvious (at least for me) is to be able to create 64-bit DLL, to let them work with 64-bit applications not written with PB.

I completely second that Patrice.

You can do nearly anything else also in 32 bit, but a Hook-DLL needs x64.
There is no way around because a 32 bit DLL can not enter the adress-space of a 64 bit application.

And thats why i made the X64 Board. Link see next post :-).

Theo's link (above) didn't work, I found the "x64 Board" here:
