Installing 64 bit HMG with 32 bit already working

Dear HMG mentors

I would like to try to install HMG 64 bit. I have already downloaded HARBOUR-64 (nightly 2016-04-20), and MinGW-64_ver.5.3.0 archives
but they are sitting in my downloads folder waiting the courage to proceed.

If I procede to install, will I end up with a new HMG64 directory independent of the present 3.4.4 32 bit directories, or will the present contents be
overwritten?

Can anyone point to the simplest set of instructions?

Any warnings of caveats in the process would be appreciated.

Thank You in advance

Well i was follow this steps.

1º Copy the present 3.4.4 32 bit folder to another folder like backup
2º Install HMG 64 bit to 3.4.4 32 bit folder
3º Verify if it's works , first compiling through IDE in 32 bit and late 64 bit ...
4º If 64 bit compiler not work just verify path parameter into .bat files

Enjoy it
Best Regards

Thank you for taking the time to respond.

When you say Install HMG 64 bit to 3.4.4 32 bit folder , then when do the
2 RAR files get added, ie. HARBOUR-64 (nightly 2016-04-20), and MinGW-64_ver.5.3.0 archives ?

Thanks

I installed as you said. My c:\HMG3.4.4 directory has the same folders as yours does ***except**** I am missing the folder named OBJ. Also I am getting messages that HBMK2 is not recognized. :(

Thanks for you help.

Thanks, I used you batch files and get the following result

If I try to build an exe file INSIDE the c:\HMG.3.4.4 directory it works :)

if I copy build64.bat to c:\HMG.3.4.4\ mysourecode directory if fails :(
I get messages that "windres" and "HMG2" are not recognized as an internal or external command.

It seems that these file, which are definitely present , are not visible to Build64.

I thank you for you patience and help ...... I am close to success

I can now say that building in 64 bits is working. The only thing I would like to know is whether the result is really
a 64 bit exe since the BCC55 compiler is only 32 bit capable.

Thanks to everyone for helping me get there.

Hola Bluebird

Si estas hablando de HMG 3.4.4, de donde tomas el BCC55 compiler ???
Según entiendo, HMG 3.4.4 trabaja con el compilador MingW

Si ya pudiste compilar con el compilador de 64, tu .exe debería de trabajar en una
máquina de 64.

Hello Bluebird

As I understand it, HMG 3.4.4 works with the MingW compiler

If you were already able to compile with the 64-compiler, your .exe should work in a
64 machine.
