That depends on whether you want to compile your application as 32-bit or as 64-bit application. If you compile as a 32-bit application, then this will work on machines running 32-bit and 64-bit OS whereas 64-bit application will only work on machine running 64-bit OS.

To compile your project as 32-bit / 64-bit application:

1. Launch Visual Studio | Your project
2. Once opened, go to Project | "YourProjectName" Properties
3. Go to Build tab
4. Set the Platform target as "x86" for 32-bit or "x64" for 64-bit.

If you use "AnyCPU", your assembly will JIT compile to 64 bit code when loaded into 64 bit process and 32 bit when loaded into a 32 bit process. One thing to aware of in using "AnyCPU" is that if you application has 32-bit and 64-bit DLLS, 32-bit DLLs will NOT work.

If x64 is missing, then refer to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/vstudio/ms185328.aspx.

I don't think there is anything to consider unless you are using any 3rd party components which are only 64 bit version on that 64bit computer.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Things to consider:
* Do you want to maintain a 32-bit and a 64-bit application?
* Do you use any external libraries? If yes, can you get a 64-bit version of the library?

If the answer is NO to either one of the questions above, then I would suggest that you just compile a 32-bit application and deploy it on 64-bit OS.

Also ask yourself this: What are the specific reasons why you want a 64-bit app?

That may help you if the work involved is justified.
