What I usually do is build a 32-bit version of my application when I am testing under NT32Pkg.

 

Currently there is no 64-bit version of Nt32 and I have not heard of any plans to develop it.

But the problem is I need to build X64 EFI applications because all the systems are using X64 versions.  If I try to boot the IA32 shell the systems refuse until the X64 shell is used, and from there I can't run the IA32 applications, need to be built as x64.

NT32Pkg cannot be built as X64. You can still run the 32-bit version under X64 windows.

It's if I change target.txt items:

TARGET_ARCH           = IA32
TOOL_CHAIN_TAG        = VS2008x86

To:

TARGET_ARCH           = X64
TOOL_CHAIN_TAG        = VS2008

and then just type

build

tells me the

Invalid ARCH specified. [Valid ARCH: IA32]

Hi David,

It should be able to build under windows using VS2008.  Can you copy paste your build command as well as the output with error?

Hi,

I downloaded the UDK2010.SR1.UP1 and tried to build x64 target under windows (VS2008) but it complained the arch wasn't supported.   Unfortunately most systems with UEFI are x64 and will only run the x64 shell and x64 applications.  So I'm curious why you can't build x64 apps under Windows??  Is the only issue the stack.asm file?  Is everybody using linux to build UEFI?  How can I proceed to use Windows to build x64 UEFI applications?

TIA!!
