DotNET: Any CPU vs 32/64 bit deployment


We have some trouble with MS MSI installer (which seems to be able to work with/install only 32 bit DLLs) and wonder if PDFNet can run in Any CPU mode instead of 32-bit / 64-bit.


Could PDFNet.dll be provided as ANY CPU, rather than 32-bit and 64-bit

but you could use GAC, side-by-side assemblies or copy/install the right assembly based on the architecture (for more info please see

If MS MSI installer does allow you to do what you need, did you consider replacing it with an different installer (e.g. nullsoft installer, InstalShiled, … etc.)?
