He means with the 64 bit OS.

I would assume that it works, but I really don't know. I know Ms is trying to make as many 32 bit apps run in the OS as possible, and I am going to assume they checked there own products first.

Visual Studio 2003 does work under Windows XP Professional x64 Edition.

The only things that usually don't work under x64 are things that require drivers or check the os version information and deny unknown versions of windows.

Examples:

Splinter Cell Chaos Theory does not work due to it checking for known versions of windows.

Cisco Systems Vpn client does not work due to the fact it installs a 32 bit driver that will not work on x64.

Past those 2 programs I havent run into many 32 bit apps that won't run. The 32 Bit "Windows on Windows" emulation system is quite impressive. I've played games such as Doom3 and HaloPC with no noticable performance differences between running it in normal 32 bit Windows XP.

I would say that the largest problem with x64 is drivers. Until vendors start supporting x64 better it will be hard to get it installed supporting all your devices. (I had to modify the inf files for my raid drivers to get x64 to accept them)

Oh yeah. and the Boot time of x64 is Amazing!

also if you are using visual studio .net 2003 with a limited user account on xp64 you will have to add them to the "Debugger Users" group otherwise you wont be able to run/debug programs from the ide.
