x64 edit and continue
Imporve x64 debugger so Edit and Contunue works when running on Windows x64 o/s
64-bit Edit and Continue is now available when debugging C# and VB applications with Visual Studio 2013 and CLR 4.5.1.
You can download the Preview here:
If you want to vote on 64 bit edit and continue for C++, you can do so here:
I am focussing on and learning 64-Bit development since a while and, hence, will greatly appreciate being able to use an optimal supported plattform. So, please, bring in the Edit & Continue stuff for x64 to make developer's heart smile again. It'll save a substantial amount of time during the development phase creating new stuff :)

Dont mix the two issues: E&C 64bit application and E&C Anonymous Method support are different.
plz support this
I can't use 32 making plugin! But application is loading very slow. Edit and continue was key point when I had 32 bit windows.
I do all of my development in 64. E&C is such a useful tool, it REALLY NEEDS to be there. I'm amazed that with all the win8/64 bit hooraw going on that VS would be released without it. It is simply deficient. PLEASE fix this.

Writing x64 .NET apps for AutoCAD, if a change is needed, stop the program, remember where to change the source code, rebuild, launch AutoCAD again to retest: frustrating when it's a hundred times a day! Please bring in Edit & Continue!
Please bring this feature for x64 compilers!!
same problem as Bert ... autocad64 bit and vs2010
With 64bits application, there is no work around to make Edit and Continue work. So any time I want to debug, I need to let the application (AutoCAD) start. Load a DLL. Start to debug. If I see a bug. I need to shut down the Application, correct and start the application again... I can do that a hundred times a day. God it's painful. Please fix that fast!!

Why was this declined?
Our team avoids lamdas, anonymous methods, and now async/await because of the lack of edit and continue.

Thank you all for your comments.
I hope some of you will be willing to help me understand better your scenarios by sharing with me what are you building using 64-bit and what platforms are you targeting.
If you prefer you can also contact me directly at YanivF@Microsoft.com.
Thank you - Yaniv, .Net runtime program manager, Microsoft.

Edit Continue of Visual Studio was very productive and helpful feature. It would be very handy to have it back forVisual Studio 2012 on Windows 7 Profressional 64 bit OS.
Yes. It will be very helpfula and will save a lot of time.. :)
Just switched to 64-bit development and fonud out that Visual Studio does not support Edit & Continue for x86. What on earth were the Visual Studio development team thinking? This is a crucial feature that has been in VS for years. Developing without it is like going back to the Stone Age.
If you want to stay in market, or simply if yoo want to provide a REAL PROFESSIONAL tool, please do this.
Yes please... for productivity I have to change my startup project to x86 in development from AnyCPU. This is a really poor development experience considering our software is designed to run in 64-bit!
<sigh> Just do it. This should be a priority. It's been missing, broken or half broken, depending on your platform or language, since VS2002.
Yes. It boggles the mind that this wouldn't be implemented, with all the other trash they spend their time on.
Would be much appreciated!
