kernelbase.dll problems with x64 bit platforms

One customer who had kernelbase.dll issues running TextPipe (which is x32) on a x64 platform was to run the processes on a separate machine via pxexec
Our workaround utilizes running the TextPipe portion of our processing
on a remote 32 bit machine, while all other steps in the processing can
be run from the local 64 bit machine. We achieved this by using the
Windows psexec utility for running remote processes on other pc's.

Our batch file which calls TextPipe is in this format:

Code: Select all

psexec \\RemotePC -u username -p password cmd /c "C:\Program
Files\TextPipe\textpipe.exe" "/f=C:\Filters\TextPipe\Filter.fll" /g /q
The local pc has the psexec utility on it. The remote pc has TextPipe
installed, along with the filter.

I suppose another feasible solution would be to run TextPipe on a Virtual Machine.

e.g. Using VirtualBox, with a copy of say Windows XP (32-bit) installed as the VM.

See http://www.virtualbox.org/

I have not yet tried this, but it's something worth investigating, for sure.

PsExec is described here in some detail.
