RW Net 4 DLL for MapInfo 64-bit

Pitney Bowes has released an alpha version of their upcoming 64-bit version of MapInfo Professional. We decided to test it with the 64-bit version of RW Net 4 DLL and performed two runs:

MapInfo 12.0 > test.mbx > rwnet4.dll (32-bit)
MapInfo 12.5 > test.mbx > rwnet4.dll (64-bit)

It was the exact same mapbasic application and we got the exact same results (distance matrices, isochrones etc.). Success !!

The 64-bit version of RW Net 4 DLL shall be included in the next release of RW Net.

There is also the option of calling the RW Net 4 .NET assembly from MapBasic 12.5. According to the documentation this has been extended a lot, so it is possible to call constructors etc. This means support for objects, rather than only static methods. But that is an area we haven’t tested yet.

  1. Interesting, Uffe. Good to see that the move was easy.

    How about the performance? Did you see any change here?

  2. I didn’t check performance. Very short runs, just a couple of secs.
