Windows on ARM64 installer

Hi,

I just got a Lenovo Yoga C630 Windows on Arm laptop with the Qualcom snapdragon 850 processor, I saw that NSIS has support for ARCH64 but it is untested, can I help testing it? What can I do that would be helpful? I have built a couple of open source apps with arm64 support, like notepad2 and notepad++, which I could use to test installation. I haven't ever built an installer with nsis before, but I am willing to try.

Thanks,

Alex

Saying we support ARM is a bit over the top. We have ARM platform detection for x86 installers running on ARM hardware (in the x64.nsh header).

What we don't have is support for is generating and running native ARM installers. I was able to compile most of the files for ARM previously but never tested the generated installers. I can't remember if I save any of these files but I'll check.

Do you have Visual Studio 2019 installed anywhere? (Does not have to be on the ARM machine)

Try this and see what happens, it will probably crash though.
