    yeah, well they won’t install on x64 so what’s the point? I don’t have a win32 installation of windows anymore. Go transition to x64 they say, it’s good for you they say, a load of crap is what i say…

  2. Hi Lug – I’m sorry for the frustration regarding the Express editions on x64. I think WOW64 support for Express was a relatively late cut and fairly painful for the team to have to do. The other VS editions will support WOW64 when VS 2005 ships.
