Where is the x64 binary?

Feb 21, 2012 at 5:05 PM

I would like to use your wrapper, but it fails to run on a 64bit host system. Have you tried using it on such a system yourself?

Hi phil,

I am getting error when i try to run on the new 64bit Consumer Preview.

Did you find any solution?

No, I did not find a solution for that. And since the author refuses to disclose the source code for the sqlite3 binary he used, its impossible to build a x64 target (using the current sqlite3 code).

I just uninstalled my 64bit Consumer Preview and installed the 32bit but again the same error...

An exception of type 'System.BadImageFormatException' occurred but was not handled in user code

 Additional information: An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007000B)

If someone came up with some kind of solution so make local database in Windows 8 metro style app please contact me.

Maybe this will help: SQLiteMetro It's based on this project, but comes with full source and a solution, so it should be compilable for x64 (and ARM, when needed).

Hi Cougar78,

I downloaded the source but i cannot open the project.

i get the following error:

Platform 'ARM' referenced in the project file 'SQLiteMetro' cannot be found. Please make sure you have it installed under '%VCTargetsPath%\Platforms\ARM'.

any solution?

What version of Visual Studio are you using? I got the impression the ARM target gets installed by default, but I'm not sure if it comes with all VS11 editions.

The error posted above is caught in vs 2010

in vs 2011 I got error that says "Can't find localized resources"

can you make .dll and just use that as reference in projects?

You can't compile WinRT stuff with VS 2010. You need Windows 8 Consumer Preview + VS11 beta.

I have download SQLiteMetro,but  when  I compile it,it  has error:“ error C3952: 'Platform::Array<__TArg,__dimension> ^' : WinRT does not support 'in/out' arrays. Use 'const Array<>^ for 'in' and 'WriteOnlyArray' or 'Array^*' for 'out' on public APIs.' c:\users\来\desktop\mnemonicwme-sqlitemetro-4fa0918a6a77\mnemonicwme-sqlitemetro-4fa0918a6a77\sqlitemetro\statement.h 35 1 SQLiteMetro
