Hello,

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

Thanks,

Victor

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.
