It is provided, and also useful, to install both versions - TC and TCx64 - in one directory. As of that, of course, also the configurations files (and notably also the wincmd.ini) are used by both versions simultaneously. This is so willed and desired, and therefore the best way to handle it.

If now - as an example - some color elements within the two versions (for better differentiation) should be differented to different colors (to faster and better distinguish between TCx32 and TCx64), it is possible to do the different configuration for 32bit and 64bit with the TCs capability to redirect parts of the wincmd.ini to other files with the option RedirectSection=.

As it is possible to use environment variables within the option RedirectSection=, this is the an easy way to separate configuration parts for TC and TCx64 to different files. Because there is an environment variable in Windows 64 bit systems, which content depends of the calling process (32bit and 64bit). (the 'set' command of the command processor command shows the difference at the Command Prompt).

64bit: PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE=AMD64
32bit: PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE=x86


For the aforementioned example, see summarized the following:

Datei wincmd.ini (Auszug):
...
[Colors]
RedirectSection=%COMMANDER_INI%-%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE%
...

File wincmd.ini-x86:
[Colors]
InverseCursor=0
InverseSelection=0
BackColor=14803425
BackColor2=-1
ForeColor=-1
MarkColor=-1
CursorColor=-1
CursorText=-1

File wincmd.ini-amd64:
[Colors]
InverseCursor=0
InverseSelection=0
BackColor=16777215
BackColor2=-1
ForeColor=-1
MarkColor=-1
CursorColor=-1
CursorText=-1
