visual studio 2012 express

Hello,

I build a small application using visual studio express 2012. I'm using windows 7 64bit laptop.
When I try to run this application on a windows xp 32bit, I get an error msg.
..... DataApp.exe is not a valid Win32 application

can someone please tell me how to configure/build this app in visual studio so i can run it on 32bit machines?

Which version of .net do you build for?  (I think Win XP will only work with .net 4 or lower)

In the application properties you need to change the CPU type to 'Any' so that it will run on any 32/64 bit systems.
