NAudio x64 Testing Needed

After a bit of a blogging break, I think it is time to give a brief status update. I have been trying to keep up with the constant stream of support requests coming in through the NAudio forums and comments on posts here but the reality is that there has been more than I can handle so please accept my apologies if your query has gone unanswered.

I do continue to make slow progress on NAudio. Today I checked in a changeset that should hopefully give us proper x64 support. My only trouble is that I do not have an x64 machine to test on (next PC I buy will be x64 but that may not be for another year). If anyone has a 64 bit OS and is willing to help me out with a quick test then please do the following:

  1. Download the latest NAudio source code and load it up in Visual Studio 2008
  2. Go to the NAudio project settings, and on the Build tab set the Platform target to Any CPU (it is currently set to “x86”)
  3. Run the NAudioDemo application and attempt to play an MP3 file
  4. Comment here letting me know how you got on

It would be great to be able to properly support x64 as currently you are forced to set your calling application to x86 only as well.
