32 and 64 distributions on Windows

32 and 64 distributions on Windows

I have a program written in managed code and uses the ipps dll's. In order to access a function I have to import the functions via

const string lib = "ippsem64t-5.3.dll"; // vista 64


const string lib = "ipps-5.3.dll"; // 32 bit os

[DllImport(lib)] public static extern void ippsZero_64f(double[] dst, int len);

What is the best way to handle using the same program on different os? (Remember this is managed code so my same EXE can run on eithr OS) I was thiniking to define

const string lib = "my-ipps-5.3.dll";

and then just rename ippsem64 or ipps to that dll at installation depending upon the operating systems.

Is this a proper method, or will I get into trouble. Also, are their better ways of dealing with this issue.



PS; Is Intel planning on supplying managed wrappers or do we have to roll our own forever.

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.


you know in native code it is not easy to combine 32-bit and 64-bit code in single executable. To be honest I do not know the best way of doing that.

Currently we do provide an example of how to provide VB .NET or C# interface to IPP. We do not have plan to supply managed wrappers for IPP in the nearest versions. You could submit it as a feature request to Intel Premier Support.
