I developed a C++ Windows Console solution developed using
Visual Studio 2008 on a 32 bit Windows 7 Ultimate PC.
I transferred the solution to the server which is a 64 bit machine running Windows 7 Professional and
Visual Studio 2008 .
When I try to run the solution in debug or release
mode using F5 (or) Cntrl F5 , the task manager shows the process as
devenv.exe *32 and I am unable to get it to run in the 64 bit mode.
Here are some more observations
Visual studio is installed in the
Program Files (x86) directory.
When I right click Solution from Solution Explorer --> Properties --> Configuration Properties --> Select Configuration Manager --> Active Solution Platform , it has only
Win32 listed in it. When I click on New in the drop down, it shows type as Pocket PC 2003 (ARMV4) and
Copy Settings from only has the Win32 option.
How can I make the solution run in the 64 bit mode?
