How to Add ARM Support to Visual Studio Expressby Sharon Harp
Visual Studio Express is a programming interface development environment (IDE) that lets users code applications in various languages, such as Visual Basic, C and C++. Support for Intel processors is built in to the software and enabled by default, but if you want your applications to run properly on the ARM microchip framework, you need to change the options in Visual Studio so that applications are compiled for ARM instead of for Intel.
Open Visual Studio Express. Do not open your project.
Click "Tools," "Options," "Compiler Options," then "Processor Framework Compile Options."
Click the checkbox in front of the "ARM" option, then click "Apply and exit."
Open your project, then click the "Compile" button in the toolbar. When you click this button, you are presented with an option for which processor you want to compile for.
