Debugging + Running on 64 bit Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

    • 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?
