Installer for 64-bit OS

I have a Basic MSI installer that has been used for 32bit operating systems so far. But I need it to support a 64 bit OS in the future. What would be the best way to have my MSI support a 64bit operating system? How much would need to be changed?

For example, I know that some properties are different such as System64 instead of System. Would I just have to do conditional checks to determine if the OS is 32 or 64 bit, so I know which properties to use?

Also, should I make a separate 64-bit MSI? Or can I make my current one support both 32 and 64 bit systems?

Re: Installer for 64-bit OS

This really depends on the application you are installing. If the future release has 64-bit components, then you may have to create a separate 64-bit installer.

Re: Installer for 64-bit OS

How would I know if I need to make 64-bit components?
