I’m using PackageCompiler to provide colleagues with a batteries included package (Julia + pre-compiled Julia code) that they just unzip and run. This process worked perfectly so far for Intel based computers. Trying to run the package on a computer with AMD processor throws the error
ERROR: Unable to find compatible target in system image.
Julia is started like this:
julia.exe -J "path\to\sysimage.dll".
Is this to be expected?
sysimage.dll is compiled on an Intel i5-8265U. The error occurs on an AMD Ryzen 9 3900X based computer. Both are running Win10 64 bit.
PackageCompiler offers the option
cpu_target, but I couldn’t find possible values. Is there a list somewhere? Would this be the right place to adjust the target architecture?
In the PackageCompiler code I found branches depending on 32bit, 64bit, arm, powerpc, but nothing Intel/AMD specific.
Would chances for success maybe be higher if I compiled on an Intel i7? (Unfortunately, I don’t have an AMD to test).
