I have to use Veracrypt in a 64 Bit Windows PE. Because there is no 32 Bit subsystem I cannot start Veracrypt.exe. To use Veracrype there a 64 Bit compiled (x64) version of VeryCrypt.exe would be needed.
Many thanks

Hi,

There was issue building 64-bit versions of VeraCrypt exe files but I made the necessary modification and now I include 64-bit exe files in the installer so that on 64-bit Windows machines, those 64-bit exe files will be deployed instead of the 32-bit ones.
Thank to this, we have a performance boost on 64-bit machines for encryption/decryption operations of partitions/drives.

This will also help you since you can use the installer to extract all files and use the files "VeraCrypt-x64.exe" and "VeraCrypt Format-x64.exe" in your 64-bit Windows PE environment.

You can download the Windows installer for version 1.11-BETA that include this from Sourceforge nighly builds folder: https://sourceforge.net/projects/veracrypt/files/VeraCrypt%20Nightly%20Builds/

Keep us updated if this works for your.
