Not exactly sure what you're trying to do, but we have devs here with VS2008 & 2010 running on W7 64 without any issues.

But, the only way would be either format and get a copy of 32bit W7 (and I'm guessing a loss in RAM if you have more than 3GB) or create a VM (virtualbox from Sun is free) and run a 32bit version of XP/W7 in there just for your project.

You could try running it in compatibility mode, or by using the built in virtual XP mode.

If you already own a Windows 7 32-bit software I would use VirtualBox and create a virtual environment to run your program. But I am with the person above and confused why you are not able to edit .net in 64bit.

I learned over time that people that have problems with using apps on 64bit opsys usually have their file structure set up wrong. just my 2 cents.

I work at a bank. One of our software vendors is one of the largest in the country. We're still running XP images on most of our PCs, because not all of their applications are windows 7 and 64 bit supported. Some apps just won't work.
