Best way to publish 32 & 64 bits package ?

Hello / Bonjour,

Recently i test the WPP for publishing 64 bitsApps with success : now i wonder about what is the best way to publish packages for 32 and 64 bits computers in the same wsus group of computers ( with W7 pro 32/64 bits and W7 Embedded 32 bits)

If i want to publish a IE 11 package to upgrade the computers with IE10 i need to prepare scripts or package for 32 and 64 bits versions OS.

Should i publish 2 packages (32 and 64 bits), and let the computer choose the right version for them ? Is that ok ?
or in WPP must i configure it in different way and how ?
or simply make different computers groups to distinguish 32 and 64 bits versions ?

Thanks in advance for your response !

Hi, IE11 is already in Wsus, why don't you use it ?
If you really want to publish IE11 into Wsus with WPP, you should make two package :
  • one for 32bit computers
  • a second for 64bit computers
make a rule in the IsInstallable rule to filter computers by bitness.
