How do I use Ultra Office Control
on 64bit windows with .Net C# or VB?
7 or vista has become popular. Ultra Office Control can
work well on 64 bit machine. But you need to pay attention below points:
1. Ultra Office Control itself is 32 bit and so does Office. We may create 64 bit control later if Office supports 64 bit
2. If you use Ultra Office Control in C# or VB.Net, be sure to compile your application to x86 instead of AnyCPU. Because AnyCPU .Net application will run as 64 bit process on 64 bit windows.
