#3 RCEDIT.exe vs. RCEDIT64.exe again


I'm sorry I have to ask this again, but what is the difference between RCEDIT.exe and RCEDIT64.exe?
In 2870508 you wrote the RCEDIT64.exe has to be used for the WinRun4J64.exe and WinRun4J64c.exe files.
But I used RCEDIT.exe and all seems to be well.
How would it show that it doesn't work?
Can the RCEDIT64.exe also be used on a 32bit machine doing the build process?

    From my testing it seemed that RCEDIT64 was a tad more stable when modifying 64bit binaries but YMMV.

    stable in the sense of what? that e. g. an icon is not embedded though the command was invoked etc.? Or how would this unstability show?

    How about using RCEDIT64.exe on 32bit machines, is that possible?

    Hm, maybe now stumbled upon one of the instabilities when using the 32bit RCEDIT on the 64bit executable:

    [exec] [err] Could not load exe to clear resources: /path/to/64bit.exe

    And no, the RCEDIT64.EXE is a 64bit executable and doesn't run on 32bit machines. :-/
