OCX's for 32- and 64-bit platforms


We are about to modernize the shipping module in a PB11.2 application. Currently we are forced to build 32-bit Win7 PCs for any station that requires a handheld Symbol scanner. This is because the Zebra virtual COM driver is not supported on 64-bit platforms. Zebra does have a pair of OCX's, one for 32-bit and one for 64-bit PCs. How then to retrofit our existing scanner window? Since we have a mix of PCs on the floor, does my development PC have to have both loaded? Do I need a separate window for each bit size and load the proper one based on the environment? Not sure how to proceed. Or am I making too much out of this?
