For those of you who attended my Webcast this morning on developing for the Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition from Visual Studio 2005, you can now download the sample code and compiled solution.

There were no slides, just a brief introduction to the x64 platform essentials at the beginning. The Webcast demonstrations were drawn in part from the Hands-on Lab at TechEd 2005 that I put together on x64 programming (which were drawn in turn from the Intel Route 64 roadshow). Visual Studio 2005 beta 2 and a computer running Windows XP Professional x64 Edition are also required.

Have fun with the samples - someone suggested running the x64 specific release on the regular 32-bit Windows XP to see if there would be a sensible exception message... Any bets on this one?
