Intel compiler VS.NET 2002 integration

With the VS.NET integration, is it possible to compile a 64-bit target while working in a 32-bit environment? I notice that when I enable the Intel VC++ 7.1 integration, that my VC 7.1 projects are configured to use the icl.exe compiler. There is no way, at least using the IDE property pages, to set the ecl.exe (64-bit) compiler. Is there a way to do this? I understand that I won't be able to run/debug the app on my machine, but it would be convenient to compile locally.

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.


With the VC7 integration, the Intel compiler dropped support for cross-compiling using the IDE. I looked some time ago and didn't see any info on Microsoft developing VC to run native on Itanium. A native IDE might preclude the need for a cross-compiler (though I don't know if that was part of the decision process).

You might try using Visual Studio 6 with the v7 of the Intel Compiler, if that environment is an option.
