64i Versions of Extenders

 Keywords:  

64i Versions of Extenders Starting in 2011B: We started the process of creating 64-bit versions of our most popular extenders. WinBatch and the WinBatch+Compiler are now available with native 64-bit executables. 64-bit versions of WinBatch can only load 64-bit WIL Extender dlls.

Many of the extenders will slowly be converted to the new 64I types.

For example to access the functions in the Control manager extender, add the following to your script:

AddExtender('WWCTL44I.DLL',0,'WWCTL64I.DLL')

The AddExtender function now supports an optional parameter which allows you to specify an alternative filename. This can be used for the 64 bit extender.


AddExtender

Installs a WIL extender dll.

Syntax:

AddExtender(filename [,version [, alternate filename ] ] )
Parameters:
(s) filename:  WIL extender Dll filename

(s) extender version: (optional) minimum required extender version number.

(s) alternate filename:  (optional) 64-bit WIL extender Dll filename.  Note that 64-bit WinBatch still treats the first parameter as the file name of a 64-bit extender when no third parameter is present.
Returns:
(i)  @TRUE if function succeeded
