The Dinkumware Standard C++ Library is installed with Appmethod C++. Dinkumware is the implementation of the C++ Standard Library that is used for Windows (Win32 and Win64) target platforms in Appmethod.

Separate STL Versions for 32-bit Windows and 64-bit Windows

The IDE automatically adds the correct Dinkumware version, based on the target platform you have set for your C++ applications. You should not explicitly #include Dinkumware.

  • 64-bit Windows applications use Dinkumware Version 6.40.
    • The headers for 64-bit Windows are installed here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\15.0\include\dinkumware64
  • 32-bit Windows applications use Dinkumware Version 5.01.
    • The Version 5.01 library has been updated with some newer templates.
    • The headers for 32-bit Windows are installed here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\15.0\include\dinkumware

Note: Appmethod C++ does not currently support the use of the Dinkumware Standard C++ Library on mobile platforms. Only Windows (Win32 and Win64) is supported.
