OK I am currently working with a 32 bit OS using VS 2005 ( 32 bit) I have had inquiries as to what it would take to design in a 64 bit environment.

Here are my questions

1- I am currently working on a 32 bit OS do I need to upgrade to a 64 bit OS to design in VS 2005?
2-If I do upgrade my OS to 64 bit will I need to upgrade my Visual Studios to 64 bit? or can I still use the same 32 bit VS 2005.
