I am trying to create a simple Dialog based VC++ application (not .net)and run it.
I have a 32 bit machine (XPsp2) VS 2005 with X64 compiler.
I want to build the application so as to target on 64 bit machine.
I selected the x64 in configuration manager.
The build go fine but what i get as output is not an ".exe" but an "exe.intermediate.manifest". I would like to know how it can be used in a 64 bit machine.
I need to have a 64 bit build so that it works in 64 bit machine as a 64 bit application. But my development PC is a 32 bit.
The problem i have now is that though the build goes fine i do not get an EXE i get the manifest file .
Is there some thing extra which i have to do in the project settings? Or is there some post build steps which will convert this manifest file to a valid exe?
Can some one guide me on how to create 64 bit build on a 32 bit machine in VC++
