How to run win32 and win64 vsts together?

Post by muzikermammoth »

I'm trying to run a windows 64 bit vst. But when i drag and drop the VST dll into the carla rack, the carla log says: wine is a 64 bit installation and cannot be used with a 32 bit wineserver. I remember installing wine32-tools vs wine64-tools. Maybe this is causing a conflict.

But how is everyone managing the wine32 vs wine64 deployment

It might seem that you only have 32 bit WINE installed.

The easiest way to determine whether you have a 32 bit WINE prefix or not, is to open the WINE folder (typically /home/username/.wine/drive_c) and if you only see the "Program Files" folder, this means 32 bit prefix.

Also, check the packages on your system. I'm using Linux Mint 19.3., and a simple sudo dpkg -l | grep -i wine gives:

(hope I don't mess up the formatting)

I think carla has own packages for different bridges, I have carla-bridge-wine32 and carla-bridge-wine64.

I mostly use windows vsts with Airwave, but they say it is dead.

You are right, I forgot to filter "carla" as well, only did it with "wine". :mrgreen:

But I'm sure those bridges still need the appropriate (32 or 64 bit) Wine prefix under the hood, otherwise they wouldn't work. Honestly I didn't experiment with this, I just installed both Wine and Carla to support 32 and 64 bit stuff.
