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.

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?

diag test. good to learn new terms. thanks. :)

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 Importance of bitwise thinking
I thought understanding binary is very basic and all programmers should know that. I need to change my mind. Thank you.

comment Importance of bitwise thinking
Oh, now I see why everybody seems to be angry at me. I never asked anyone to 'swap variables using bitwise operators'. I don't look for that sort of skill. I don't like them to memorize every tricks. What I ask is fairly simple, you can re-read my post. Yet, people at programmers are thinking that's exactly what I asked!

comment Importance of bitwise thinking
So, programmers don't need to understand binary/bitwise operations to be a programmer. 100 years from now, programmers will write programs, but won't understand how their programs get compiled, how they're run by OS, how OS works, how computer works... Am i overthinking?

@user16764: Not sure. :) But I want a set of keyboard and mouse with which I'll be comfortable.

@AaronMcIver: A physicist don't need to manipulate atoms directly, but you expect s/he understands atom, right?

comment Importance of bitwise thinking
@birryree: Well, understanding binary is pretty basic skill every programmer should have. But since today's software development is not about bitwise operations anymore, I'd like to have others opinion about it. Btw, I don't reject them based on their answers on bitwise questions.

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.

@MadKeithV: i've mentioned that our maintenance will be difficult with today's build. thanks.

@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.

@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, ...
