    yesterday i download Visual studio 2012 professional from MSDN web site and i install it inside windows server 2012 R2 64-bit. but i have noted that the visual studio got installed inside this location under "Program Files (x86)":-

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe"

    so does this mean that the VS i have is 32-bit ? and can i get 64-bit of visual studio ?

    second question , if i deploy my web application from visual studio to IIS , then does this mean that the deployed application will be 32-bit,since the VS which i use to deploy it is actually a 32-bit ? or there is not any relation between VS version and the deployed application ?

    That would be 32-bit. I do not think Visual 2012 comes in a 64-bit variety. Here is a link that corroborates that fact: Stack Overflow Question
