Installation Folders Structure
ConEmu has several required files (
dll) for normal operation.
This page describes possible variants of files layouts.
ConEmu distro contains several ‘parts’.
- Graphical interface (32bit or 64bit):
- 32bit console services:
- 64bit console services:
- Far Manager plugins are located in the
pluginsfolder and are required for Far’s users only.
Note, both ‘32bit console services’ and ‘64bit console services’ are required for proper functioning on 64bit OS! Regardless of which bitness of graphical interface you are using!
The reason is simple and obvious. If you have only one bitness of console services you will not be able to run application of this bitness in ConEmu. At all! Do you really think you’ll never run this bitness? You will waste much more nerves, energy and time when you face disability to run something somedays.
