VS2005 VB.Net project to run in 64 bit mode on Windows 7

Hello.

I have created and deployed several VB.Net applications in VS2005 running on Windows XP PC's. With the end of life coming for XP, we are likely going to migrate to Windows 7 using 64 bit processor. My VB.Net applications do not run in 64 bit mode, how can we get them to run in 64 bit mode without re-writing them...??

What is the reason for it not to run?
In theory, 32bit-applications will run in 64bit mode.
If you have security-issues, you can add a manifest to the application, elevating the needed rights to run the application, ensuring administrator-rights on the local machine.
You can also reload the project in your Visual Studio-environment and set the processor type to either 'mixed mode' or 'x64' and compile again. No recode will be needed.
