I have an msdn subscription, but (for the life of me) I cannot find the download for Visual Studio 2010 Professional x64.

Is the x64 version included in the X86 DVD?

Any help appreciated!

Visual Studio 2010 does not have a 64-bit version, only 32-bit. The 32-bit version will work fine on 64-bit Windows.

thanks for the help man! – JohnIdol Dec 18 '10 at 0:17
X64 Windows can always run 32 apps. The reason is this: In task manager when you see proc.exe*32 the "*32" means it's being run under WOW64. Neat right? – Evan Dec 18 '10 at 5:29
