I havent tried this yet but is it possible to compile code from my .net 2008 X32 machine and run it on a Vista X64 machine? I am assuming that I only need to install .net framework 3.5 on both the development machine (Windows XP X32) and the client machine (Vista X64)?
The application is a C# windows form.

in the build tab of the properties page you can set the target CPU to any, x86 or x64. So it should work ok.

Yes, you can... and in fact, that's the default    The default "CPU target" for Visual Studio is the "AnyCPU", which means that it runs as a 32-bit app on your 32-bit PC, and automagically runs as a 64-bit app on your 64-bit PCs.
The Vista x64 machine will have two versions of the .Net framework... both the 32-bit and 64-bit get installed side-by-side.   Your 32-bit developement PC will only have the 32-bit framework (which gets automatically installed when you install Visual Studio).
