comment Do we need to test 32-bit software in 64-bit Windows?
@Phil: Point noted. The DLL does use a lot of external libraries. I believe all of those DLLs are compiled for x86. The application itself doesn't have any dependency on native DLLs, but it calls native win32 API.

comment Do we need to test 32-bit software in 64-bit Windows?
Are you saying that a 32 bit software if run on 64 bit OS, the .NET on that OS will run the software in 32 bit mode - which is same as running the software in 32 bit OS in .NET? Is there any documentation?

Shell: i like that. i can't use monitor as it is used to describe some other functionality in the product line. thanks.

the firmware will not be testing micro. it will test a circuit board where the micro is plugged in. consider the circuit board of a cell phone.

Close. But it will not be self test. External commands will be given to the micro and the micro will execute them. Sorry I forgot to mention this point.

comment How to provide a solid explanation that no two software should have same version number?
@DavidThornley: It already happened few times that they say they've found a bug in version X and we find the bug has been resolved in latest iteration of version X, in case when there exist 4/5 builds with same version number "X". As others have mentioned, there exist problems with multiple builds having same version number, from developers perspective.

@DavidWallace: there is only one place where version number can be placed and retrieved. otherwise, we'd have a solution.

comment How to provide a solid explanation that no two software should have same version number?
@RobertHarvey: well i've seen plenty of "how to explain"-ish post such as programmers.stackexchange.com/q/134861?hq=1 in programmers. i'm also looking a way to convince my client not to use same version number. English is not first language so probably I failed to explain what I want.

comment How to provide a solid explanation that no two software should have same version number?
@DavidWallace: i'm sorry as i think i've chosen wrong words may be. i'm not looking for a way to define version numbers. here is my question, picked from the last sentence: How can I convince my client not to use same version number?

comment How to provide a solid explanation that no two software should have same version number?
Our client won't allow any EEPROM byte for that. I'm not looking for solution. As you've mentioned, there is no solution. I'm looking for suggestions by which my client may convince and can't deny.

Sigh. I can't say that "take responsibility on this build."

comment Date as software version number
@mouviciel: no. software that have years between releases is ok to have year only version number. i'm talking about software with faster releases. firefox, google chrome, photoshop, ...

comment “Don't do programming after a few years of starting career”. Is this a fair advice?
There exist people who don't understand what we (programmers) do. There exist people who think that Computer Science/Engineering can be grabbed by completing some 2/3 months courses outside University. Programming is challenging. Not everyone can become a programmer. Being a programmer, do you want to switch to other non-challenging career (well, I am a programmer and other careers are not-so-challenging to me)? Isn't it cool that you're doing something which can't be done by just anyone?

True. Turning off compiler optimization works.

This is 2011 and a newer version of compiler is supposed to be smarter. But alas, it doesn't!

comment Guidelines About Using Code Repository
@Matthieu: my purpose of the post is to get an idea of all those features (i don't know about centralized/decentralized systems) and when to use them, whatever the system is (centralized/decentralized). i want to learn the methods.
