    Is there Visual Studio 64 bit ?


    Is there a Visual Studio 2013 for 64 bit exclusively or does it only come out in 32 bit flavor ?? If there is a 64 bit Visual Studio please give me the link so as to where I can find it. Thanks.

    No, there is not. The only product in the visual studio family that has a 64bit version is Team Foundation Server.

    I logged in with my MSDN account and there is nothing available other then 32bit versions of Visual Studio.

    Not the IDE, granted. But in previous versions of Visual C++ you could download the 64 bit SDK and compile native 64 bit VC++ programs. I hope this track is kept alive. I have a Laptop right now. VC++ may be a bit of a load. I'll wait until I get a new desktop PC.

    You can definitely compile 64-bit programs in Visual Studio. Microsoft would be really shooting themselves in the foot at this point to not support compiling to 64-bit. The IDE itself is 32-bit though I am pretty sure.

    In VS 2010 Express you could do it by downloading the SDK. That's the last vc++ setup I used.

    There's probably something similar for the newer releases.

    but it doesn't say what platform is required.
