In the new Visual Studio 2012, all the Express edition can do is to create Metro apps. Unsuitable for chess engine programming I think.

Re: A Bit of Help, Please!!!!

I haven't tested it, but there's nothing in the two protocols that depends on the number of bits. Also, at least under Windows, 32bit programs can start 64bit programs and vice versa.
