Hey Ed, that was pretty embarrassing... And it was not obvious. Apparently no changes to nmake.opt, x64 cmd took care of business, and no acts by Congress to make this work. Looks like its done.

I'm not quite sure what you mean. The steps to build on Windows x64 are similar to what is described at:


In case it's not obvious as to how to adapt those steps to Windows 64, the 3 easy steps are:

  1. Launch from the Start Menu: All Programs > Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 > Visual Studio Tools > Visual Studio x64 Win64 Command Prompt (2010). If you do not have this item in your start menu, then you did not install the 64-bit VC compiler. It is NOT installed by default when you install Visual Studio.
  2. cd to the top level directory where you extracted libtiff. This directory contains nmake.opt.
  3. nmake /f makefile.vc

Any feedback on how I go about using make files to build for x64 would be much appreciated. Thanks,
