Hello,

My application was developed in VS2010 (VB.NET) as 64 bit, is there a way to convert it to 32 bit?

Thanks,

Victor

go to the project properties and change the target platform to x86 (in Build tab):

it really depends on what your application is doing.
basically, it means that the application is restricted to execution on one processor.

I was told that my application could not be used if it's a 64 bit application, the platform of my project under Debug  is x86 which means it is a 32 bit application. Do you have a link that goes into more details between a 64 bit windows computer and an x86 computer? Thanks.

OK, i got it, didn't understand why my application wouldn't work on another computer if it was a 64 bit application. Since it's already a 32 bit application there shouldn't be a problem, last post was to see if you knew a good link to explain more about the diffrence between an x86 (32 bi)t computer and a 64 bit computer.
