x64 Edit and Continue for C++
It is high time to implement this feature. Really!
Please implement 'Edit and Continue for C++' as soon as possible.

I develop applications for AutoCAD, my customers are on x64 builds of AutoCAD. Autodesk does not support 32bit on a x64 build. Building in 32bit changes the platform and is just not the right answer. please keep C++current

The function "Edit and continue" is a important Debug utility. We have uses this in our previous compiler VC6.0 over 15 years. It is a mystery to us, that the old compiler VC 6.0 have better debug utilities as the actual tool Visual Studio 2013. We suggest the implementation of 'Edit and Continue for C++' as sson as possible.

This would be main reason for us to switch to a new Visual Studio release.
Programmers who developing softwares for Windows Servers in C/C++ have no choice other than platform x64 because there's no x86 version since Win2008 R2.
It means that without x64 E&C for C/C++, there's no E&C for them.
I think this is an enough reason to consider supporting this feature seriously, isn't it?
This is totally top priority feature request. Looking forward to this!

I develop application under Autocad 64bits. I really need the x64 edit and continue support in VS2013. Because of that I switch between Windows 32 to Windows 64 many times a day. Please add this.
still missing it since i switched my application to 64bit.
and i can't use 32bit for debugging because my application is based on AutoCAD.
please support E&C for C++ under 64bit.
I had heard about x64 edit and continue support in VS2013 and was so stoked to give it a try in our toolchain!
Then I discovered it doesn't work with C++. Sigh. Please add this.
And make sure adding a comment works: I have time and again added (in ANSI C) a comment (/* */ form) and been told that it was a change that Edit & Continue did not support:(
I was excited to inform the "under Review" status change to the 30 or so developers struggling with this issue. Please have this implemented across all C++ variations(MFC, 11, Managed, ATL etc etc...)
Status changed to 'Under Review'. Yes! Please MS, we have been asking for this on so many threads for so many years. For all the reasons already given + that dev environments should always stay ahead of the curve and not lag badly behind - please finally implement this.
Everyone is Ok to say that too many hours are spent waiting for a C/C++ app to compile : adding edit and continue with C++/x64 is a one of the greatest productivity feature which will strengthen the Windows/Visual Studio choice.
We are a lot of programmers hoping for it at Ubisoft... Come on Microsoft! Please do it!

Our start-up company is longing to see this happen (simis no). Please!
The most powerfull PLM system Siemens Unigraphics 9.0 have only 64 bit version. Developing applications for it without E&C is really big problem. Applications have is very complicated code and reqires a lot of debugging with E&C. I hope may years...

It's still missing in vc++ 2013. We are waiting for it for many-many years, sine we have swticthed from 32 bit to x64. Why not happens anything?
Coooooooommmmmmmmmmmmmeeeeeeeeeee oooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnn already! We are all familiar with dev cycles, and ******** manager requests. Just figure out a way. Right now I couldn't care less with environment I use (although I actually like VS2012), just give me E&C and that will change immediately!

Our typical projects have the following properties:
- mixed mode cpp (cpp/cli)
- source files lying on a network share
Please make that also in this scenario edit and continue is working
