I am trying to determine the risks profile of doing the following:
I want to write a C# 3.5 .NET application that calls some 32 Bit code
using PInvoke. I really want to find out what are the risks
and hidden gotchas in doing this. (This is for a Data Acquition
card). So I assume there would be a software driver for the card.
From what I can see is I would need to know all the
function prototypes for the DllImport of everything
I need to call and have to define them all.
Ok here are my questions:
1. Are the any other issues I should be concerned about?
2. Would there be any issues with this working under 64 Bit
Windows. I would like to target Vista 64 Bit and Windows 7?
3. Is the hardware model different between Windows Vista 32 and
Windows 7 x64? (I assume it would be). In other words can
a 32 bit driver be made to work under 64 bit.
Hi. These are complex questions so I am going to award maximun
points for the best answer on this.
BTW: URL to the Card so you have some context information:
