This upgrade is filled with significant improvements, new features and
fixes.

SetupBuilder 5.1 Developer Edition gets you ready for Windows x64. If you
are writing applications for the new 64-bit Windows operating system, you
will need a way to install your 64-bit files. Interactions with 64-bit
system folders, the 64-bit registry and 64-bit COM registration are
supported. This functionality is supported for both Intel and AMD 64-bit
platforms. Build installations for both pure 64-bit applications and hybrid
applications that mix 32-bit and 64-bit code. Distribute native 32-bit and
native 64-bit applications with a single version of the installer
(two-in-one technology). Use a single project base for your 32-bit and
64-bit applications.

Features/Improvements/Fixes/Workarounds/Changes/Notes:

FEATURE : Add Windows x64 (64-bit) installation support. Interactions
with 64-bit system folders, the 64-bit registry and 64-bit COM
registration are supported.

FEATURE : Build installations for both pure 64-bit applications and
hybrid applications that mix 32-bit and 64-bit code.

FEATURE : Distribute native 32-bit and native 64-bit applications with a
single version of the installer (32/64 two-in-one technology).

FEATURE : Add "WOW64 Status" option to the "Get System Information"
script function to determine whether the specified process is
running under WOW64 (64-bit Windows).

FEATURE : Add "SB_SYSWOW64DIR" option to the "Get Special Folder Path"
script function to retrieve the path of the system directory
used by WOW64. This directory is not present on 32-bit
Windows.

FEATURE : Add "Enable/Disable x64 Support..." script function to enable
or disable support for x64 on Windows x64 systems at run-time.

FEATURE : [SB#509152] Add installer Background Color support.

IMPROVEMENT: Add "Register file immediately" option to the "Register
OCXs/DLLs" script function.

IMPROVEMENT: Add $SB_ALWAYSREMOVEINSTALLER$ flag to the "Set Installer
Flag" script function. If set, the setup executable will
remove itself when it is completed.

FIX : [SB#509011] Creating additional Features and adding files to
the Program Files and Common Files folders caused a GEN1006
compiler error.

FIX : [SB#509021] Convert File Source Paths IDE function did not
convert the paths in File Properties->Patch filenames.

FIX : [SB#509022] Possible problem after entering a new Maintenance
and Support Plan ID and restarting the SB5 IDE.

certain circumstances the compiler did not generate Vista
specific conditional instruction code.

text strings.

FIX : [SB#509151] Under certain circumstances the installer did not
replace read-only files.

FIX : Under certain circumstances the compiler reported an error to
be one line past where it actually occurred.

FIX : Under certain circumstances the "Register OCXs/DLLs" script
function did not return a %_SB_ERRORCODE% value.

CHANGE : By default the %SYS32DIR% variable points to the SysWOW64
folder on Windows 64-bit machines if the installer is running
in 32-bit mode.
