64-bit platform ### VS2010 version to install

    Question

  • Hello,

    In summary:
    I've just installed "Windows 7 ultimate with service pack 1 64 bits" on a machine.
    I would like to know what version of "Visual Studio 2010" I should install on that machine.

    More details:
    On my "Subscriber Downloads" page, when I choose:
    1) "Visual studio 2010"
    2) and then "Architecture Type: 64-bit",
    I get nothing relevant to download:

    "Visual Studio 2010 Professional (x86) - DVD (English)"
    is it ok for a 64-bit platform?
    Do I need to install something else?

    Thank you for your help.

  • Hi Léa,

    Thanks for your post.

    As far as I know, Visual Studio 2010 supports both x86 and x64(WOW). The ISO Visual Studio 2010 Professional (x86) - DVD (English) from MSDN Subscriptions Downloads site is   compatible in x64 systems. In these systesms, it will run in WOW64 mode.

    If you have any concerns, please feel free to let me know.
