/<system> switch

The /<system> switch directs the MIDL compiler to generate a type library for the specified system. The default is the current operating system.


midl /{win32 | ia64 | amd64}

Switch Options

win32

Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7

ia64

An Intel-based 64-bit Windows environment such as Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, Windows Vista, or Windows 7.

amd64

An American Micro Devices-based 64-bit Windows environment such as Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, Windows Vista, or Windows 7.

Remarks

The /<system> switch is functionally the same as the MIDL /env option and is recognized by the MIDL compiler solely for backward compatibility with MkTypLib. If you are generating a new makefile, use the /env switch.

Examples

midl /win32 filename.idl
