In this section you will build your application to run on both Arm64 and x64.

Electron Builder

Start by installing the Electron Builder:


            npm install electron-builder --save-dev

The output will look similar to:


        added 191 packages, removed 12 packages, changed 18 packages, and audited 265 packages in 23s

28 packages are looking for funding
  run `npm fund` for details

4 vulnerabilities (3 moderate, 1 high)

To address all issues (including breaking changes), run:
  npm audit fix --force

Run `npm audit` for details.


Modify the package.json file in your project folder with the content shown below:


  "name": "electron-sample-app",
  "version": "1.0.0",
  "description": "Electron application to retrieve data from API and display it in a table.",
  "main": "main.js",
  "scripts": {
    "start": "electron .",
    "build": "electron-builder"
  "author": "Learning Path",
  "license": "MIT",
  "dependencies": {
    "axios": "^0.21.4",    
    "jquery": "^3.6.0"
  "devDependencies": {
    "electron-builder": "^22.12.0",
    "electron": "^16.0.5"
  "build": {
    "appId": "com.example.electron-sample-app",
    "productName": "Electron Sample Application",
    "directories": {
      "output": "dist"
    "win": {
      "target": [

Build the application

Finally, you can build the application using the following command:


            npm run build

The above command generates the following output:


        > electron-sample-app@1.0.0 build
> electron-builder

The Electron Builder will generate distributables of the application for Windows using two architectures x64 and Arm64. You will find them in the following folders:

  • x64: \dist\win-unpacked
  • Arm64: \dist\win-arm64-unpacked

Each folder contains the executable Electron Sample Application.exe. Launch this executable from both folders. Then, open the Task Manager to check that both executables run as either x64 or Arm64 processes.


In this learning path, you created the Electron application designed to retrieve and display data from a mock API in a user-friendly table format. Developed using web technologies such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, this application leverages the Electron framework to seamlessly run on Windows. With added support for both x64 and Arm64 architectures on Windows, this application demonstrates the flexibility and adaptability of Electron in building robust desktop solutions for a wide range of use cases.
