Compile VB.NET for AMD64

P: n/a
Hello,

I would like to know if it is (or will) be possible to compile a VB.NET
project for AMD64.
Actually, I can only see informations to compile a C++ (.NET) project
for AMD64, but I can't see anything about VB.NET (or C#).

I have also seen the it is possible to compile a C++ (Version 6) project
for AMD64. Is there the same for VB6?
In fact, I will soon begin a new project, and as there are a lot of
calculations in my program, I have been told that It could be
interesting to have support for AMD 64 for these parts. So, I would like
to know in wich language I should begin. Can you please point me to some
informations about all that?

Thank you

AllComp,

This version of VBNet (and VSNet) is only optimized for 32Bits.

In addition, different than in past usuall for most program languages, will
the Integer in VBNET in future not be optimized for the processor that using
the programs and needs hard coding (or replacing) of the Integer to Int64
and by next versions than again to Int128.

I hope this helps something,

Currently no, but there will be a 64-bit version of the .NET Framework
available in near future and VS 2005 will support 64-bit systems as a
target.

No, VB6 applications will always remain 32-bit.
