I am trying to build the application out to suit both CPUs. Is there any way other than changing to a 32bit application?

64-bit compilers are not installed by default on a 32-bit system. You'll need to compile a 32-bit exe and a 64-bit exe.

First, install the 64-bit compilers as described here:

You should then be able to compile both exes on your 32-bit system.

I am using Visual Studio 2013. I don't see the 64bit drivers as an option for install. For now I am going to continue as a 32bit application but I really would love to get it compiled for both options.
