1. Could you please say the nmake command option which is used to build 64
bit c-client library for Windows-XP64 ?
2. Could you please say me the same for Linux build as well.
I tried a lot, but couldn't get a way to build 64 bit library from command
line, so most of the documents on internet are focussed towards building
components from VC IDE.
