64 bit win XP - build solution problems

Hi I have been trying to build solution for device query on 64 bit win XP

if the plat form is set to 32 bit i get following error

1>nvcc fatal : Visual Studio configuration file ‘(null)’ could not be found for installation at ‘C:/Program Files (x86)/Microsoft Visual Studio 8/VC/bin’
1>Linking…
1>LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file ‘.\Debug\deviceQuery.obj’
1>Build log was saved at “file://c:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\NVIDIA CUDA SDK\projects\deviceQuery\Debug\BuildLog.htm”
1>deviceQuery - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)
========== Build: 0 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========

if I cahnge it to x64 the debug (green arrow button) is disabled

and when i right click on devicequery and click build solution i receive following output

1>------ Skipped Build: Project: deviceQuery ------
1>
========== Build: 0 succeeded or up-to-date, 0 failed, 1 skipped ==========

why is it showing 0 succeeded and 1 skipped

how do i build solution and debug in 64 bit windows

thanx in advance

I have exactly the same problem. Any ideas?

Run VS2005 setup, go to Custom. You have to go into the list for Visual C++ and actually install the x64 compilers.
