Compile problem with Ranorex 6.0

Post by jackrabbit » Fri Jun 10, 2016 2:55 pm

I was using version 5.3.4 and I am currently testing 6.0 to upgrade my tests solutions.

My solution was compiling using 5.3.4 but no longer compiles in 6.0.0. In the project properties, in the Compiling tab, if I change the Target CPU to 32 bits, it now compiles.

However I do not want a 32 bits version. I want to go 64 bits, but I can only select the platform x86 in this tab page.

What do I need to do to go 64 bits all the way?

Unfortunately, it's no longer possible to debug 64bit apps in Ranorex 6.0. You probably missed this breaking release note:
Due to the underlying SharpDevelop update within Ranorex Studio, debugging of 64bit applications is not supported any more -> choose "32-bit processor" as Target CPU in your test suite project "Compiling" properties
In other words, 64bit Release version should compile just fine.
