Unavailable 64bits support lib, for dcmtk 3.6.0 !

#1 Post by MED_G » Wed, 2017-11-29, 12:19

hi

I'm trying to install DCMTK 3.6.0 for 64bits target platform.
but I can't find a support lib, only 32bits are available

Can I use support lib from dcmtk 3.6.2 version?

Thank you

If 64 bit support is of any concern for you, I would strongly recommend using DCMTK 3.6.2. While DCMTK did in general support 64 bit even prior to version 3.6.0, it was still incomplete at that time. Most notably we did not test 64 bit support under Windows (simply since we had no 64 bit Windows at the time) and later found several lines of code where 64 bit values were simply cut off to 32 bit values, which has only been fixed after release 3.6.0.
