Hi, i have an issue with 2005 Express because i use a 64-bit OS. It wants to default to compiling for a 64-bit processor, but that is incompatible with many of the libraries such as the ones that come with the dx9 sdk. None of the samples will compile unless you manually edit the xml to compile for x86. Is there any plan on releasing a patch or add-on to make this manual editing unnecessary?
Does 2008 express fix this issue?
Finally, will there be any problem with me having .net 3.0 beta installed on my system when i try to install the standard .net 3.0?
