64Bit library for MSSCCI-API

Post by PhilS » Wed Dec 11, 2019 4:49 am

Hi!

As far as I can see, there is no Vault client library to use the MSSCCI-API from 64Bit applications.
Is this something that is planned for a future release?

We are an ISV for an SCC-Add-In for Microsoft Access and we see an increasing shift towards 64Bit installations. We also use Sourcegear Vault internally and our consulting clients begin to request 64bit solutions. Lack of a 64Bit Vault library for the MSSCCI-API is going to be a significant problem for us and our customers very soon.

Best regards,
Philipp

This is the first request we've had regarding a 64-bit implementation of the Vault Classic Client. I've recorded the information you've posted here to investigate.

At this time, it probably won't get answered until after the new year. I wish it was simple as a recompilation, and off it goes. Since the dll entry point must host the .NET Runtime within the process (so it can use the normal Vault libraries), there may be complications in the current code for loading / hosting the 64-bit CLR instead of the 32-bit version. Some time will be needed to see what's what.

Thank you, Jeff. This is not urgent for us right now. Take your time to investigate.

I'm fairly certain that 64Bit will become a requirement for our consulting work within the next year.
Also I'm aware of customers of our add-in, who are taking 64Bit MSSCCI support into consideration when evaluating which SCC system to use for their development process.

Hi Guys!
I would like to ping this topic.
We received a couple more inquiries of customers of our Ivercy SCC-Add-In who consider to use it with 64Bit Access and Sourcegear Vault.
Also, one of our main consulting clients would like to move his project to Access 64Bit by the end of this year.

So, this topic is getting more momentum on our end. It would be great to get some input from you on this.

Best regards,
Philipp

Hi Philipp,

Thank you for checking back in.

Your request was logged and is scheduled to be implemented in Vault 11. We are currently working on the Vault 11 release but we don't have a tentative release date yet available. For future purposes, you can reference ticket: 20078.

Thanks,

Tonya

A quick ping for this topic, to indicate it's ongoing relevance.:
This month we had two new prospects who would have liked to use Sourcegear Vault and Ivercy to manage their Microsoft Access software development projects. Unfortunately, they are both using 64bit Access and therefor cannot use Vault for now.

Hello again,

Thank you for checking back in. I don't have much of an update I can provide other than this feature has been logged for Vault 11. We are currently working on this release but I don't have an official release date as of yet. We will update our website and send out emails to all of our customers once it's available.

Tonya, thank you for the quick reply.
Just an idea for consideration: As the MSSCCI-API is static and also the Vault interface talking to MSSCCI will probably not change for the next major Vault release, it could be possible to release a 64bit build of the VaultIDE.dll independently of the Vault 11 with only minimal additional effort.
