        Please add Edit and Continue on 64bit. Then I could do away with my 32bit machine.

        This is really relevant for us, specially developers that must work with 64 bit plug-ins. Today the amount of time lost on launch and re-launch is killing our ideas.

        I signed for the same purpose. Edit and Continue under x64 must go on. This feature is critical to many developers.

        I signed in purely to vote for this too. How long has it been now?

        Our software company is dropping support for x32. This is crippling! There is -no- feature, none, more important than E&C! No library, not C++x0 features, not new ability to dock windows (which are all very nice) - I just want to be ale to write my code and keep going!

        E&C and instant builds are critical. Turbo Pascal and Turbo C made development enjoyable.

        The slow builds are taking joy from my work life.

        I'll stop developing Windows apps if this is not fixed. I can't take the slow builds. Without E&C I'm being tortured! You need to withhold privileges like sunlight from the development team until they provide E&C :)

        I would like to vote on this, but the item is closed. :(

        The original visual basic was a real technology step forward for windows development that cut down development time massively. Dot.Net with all it's integration is great but, and you know what I'm going to say.... it is no where near as easy to develop speedily as good old VB6. This is mainly due to the lack of Edit & Continue support across all features. Hey come on VB6 is way old now we should have something better in every department.

        The lack of E&C for 64bit is the biggest hurdle for moving to fully 64bit environment. Absolutely essential!

      • Alex Chirokov commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please make E&C work in 64bit and with anonymous methods! This is one of THE MOST essential feature of visual studio.

        As far as i know, This is because the debugger for 64 bit app in 64 bit OS is just a workaround.lt uses remote debugging to simulate the debugging even when do the debug on our local computer. Because the VS is 32 bit App.

        See the following:

        Pls help to vote the following suggestion and push the MS guys to improve it. Thanks.

        This is essential, really needed in big projects, please please please...!

        Major concern for me (c++ developper).
        Ask google "visual studio edit and continue 64 bit", 1.900.000 results.
        It seems i'm not the only one

      • naval commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        With 64 bit systems becoming more mainstream, edit and continue of 32 bit is no longer making sense.

        For future systems 64 bit of edit and continue is must.
