Which SDK do I install?

Postby Ben321 » Thu Mar 08, 2018 11:38 pm

There's a 64bit SDK and a 32bit SDK. I know the driver for my hardware must be the 64bit driver as my PC is a 64bit PC. However, the application I intend to develop is a 32bit application. Does the 32bit SDK install only 32bit drivers? Or does the 32bit SDK only refer to using it to create a 32bit application? That is, I want my application to be able to be used on both 64bit and 32bit PCs, but on my current PC the 32bit application will need to access the 64bit driver (64bit Windows won't allow a 32bit driver to be used).

Hi Ben321,

You can install both the 32-bit and 64-bit PicoSDK on a 64-bit operating system and just the 32-bit PicoSDK on a 32-bit operating system. If you are developing a 32-bit application you will need the 32-bit PicoSDK and that should then run on your 64-bit operating system.

As an example, the PicoScope 6 software is a 32-bit application but will run on both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems.
