I'm sorry if this seems like a stupid question but I'm new to Visual Studio and C#. My development PC is running Windows XP 64bit. I loaded Visual Studio 2005. What I want to know is if I develope an application using my 64-bit PC will I then need to have a 32-bit PC with VS2005 to compile and build the application to run on a 32-bit PC Or can you develope both 64 and 32 bit applications from a 64 bit PC
