I need a quick answer.
My 32 bit development machine, with vs 2008 on XP, finally blew up and I have the option to get a 64 bit machine, windows 7.
The production server that runs my apps is a 32 machine.
Will I have any problems developing on a new 64 bit computer for the target 32 bit computer?
Will my existing copy of visual studio install on a new 64 bit machine

32 bit apps will run on 64 bit operating systems.
By default the apps are configured for "any cpu" in the build so if you make an app on a 64 bit computer you can run it anywhere.
You can set it up to build specifically for 64bit only if you want to take advantage of that but its not default.
