I have an application that uses three SQL 2008 R2 SMO assemblies. I need to target 32 and 64 bit machines that are running either 32 or 64 bit versions of SQL 2008. I have no idea how to handle an Any CPU build for the application. Since
the SMO assemblies are either 32 bit or 64 bit, do I have to create a 64 bit build of my app and also a 32 bit build of my app. I have no idea how to proceed with the build at this point. This is my first app to support 64 bit machines and servers;
I have only had to work in 32 bit in the past.
Also, I do not know where the best forum for this question would be. It is not a SQL question unless the answer is in the SQL assemblies.
I am developing on 64 bit Win 7 with VS 2010 and .Net 4. The C# app is wpf.
The application needs to run on 32 and 64 bit Vista machines with 32 and 64 bit SQLExpress 2008 instances, and it also needs to run on 2003 and 2008 32 and 64 bit servers running 32 and 64 bit SQL 2008 servers.
Any help would be appreciated. I expect that I don't know what I don't know on compiling apps and including assemblies in an Any CPU world.
