Hello,
I have the following scenario:
1: I am doing development on 32 bit machine and my final production evviornment is going to be a 64 bit enviornment.
2: If my intermediate build enviornment is a 32 bit machine, which means all my MSI and installables are created on a 32 bit machne, then will there be an issue if the MSI finally runs on a 64 bit machine?
Please suggest as this is critical to my project.
