Delphi XE2 - some informations

Some informations about Delphi XE2.

Delphi XE2 brings 64bit compilation. Switch of platform is simple done in Project Manager.

Project Manager

IDE of Delphi XE2 is still 32bit and this means, that you can compile 64bit Delphi app in 32bit Windows, but for running you need 64bit. But you can debug this app remotely for 64bit PC, because every 64bit debugging (including local debugging) is done as "remote" (when debug local 64bit process, there is 64bit helper process and IDE communicate with this).

BTW: this means that every design package must be 32bit (including 64bit components) - because of 32bit IDE.
