Apple 2 Tools 64 bit

When I was working on the Mockingboard player I tried using the command line tool from asimov called Apple 2 Tools to automatically build a test disk but the program wouldn't work under a 64 bit windows shell so I was stuck manually building test disks with Ciderpress.
After revisiting the project the other day I decided to do something about it and recompiled the source code.
However, I need a tester that hasn't installed visual studio on their machine to make sure it's not calling a bunch of dll files.
I have modified my build scipts to automatically transfer files to a test disk image and it seems to work but I don't have a machine without visual studio to test on.
If someone with 64 bit windows could see if it runs from a cmd shell without giving a missing dll error that would be awesome.

None of the code has really been changed, just some compiler specific stuff so if the old program worked, so should this.
You'll need to grab the original archive off of asimov if you want the docs.
You can find it in this directory (a2tools.zip)
ftp://ftp.apple.asimov.net/pub/apple_II/utility/

I've attached an archive with the updated source and exe.

Thanks!

Never mind. Visual Studio is still using at least one dll.

A2Tools.exe - System Error

The program can't start because VCRUNTIME140.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

Yeah, it requires the Microsoft C runtime library.

That can be downloaded here:

Re: Apple 2 Tools 64 bit

After looking up what it would take to remove the use of the dll when using visual studio I think I'll pass.
I may use MinGW Cygwin to build it at some point but I don't have time at the moment.
