Is Visual Studio 11 a 64-bitapplication?

    Question

  • I'm confused, the FAQ/Info suggests that Visual Studio 11 Dev Preview is a 64bit native application running in a 64bit address space, but after I install it my process explorer reports it as a 32bit thread ... confused?  

    I can target x86 or x64 but the IDE itself is still running in a 32bit address space ... I was expecting (actually it's a decision breaker) VS 11 to be 64bit native IDE so it can work with large scale projects without taking a huge performance hit and/or instability with the IDE.  Sadly VS 11 preview is still just way too slow when I load it up with a large project.  Hopefully this is going change??
