   Visual Studio 2013 AnyCPU application running as 32-bit, even on a 64-bit OS

Question 

Why is my Visual Studio 2013 AnyCPU application running as 32-bit, even on a 64-bit OS?

Answer 

By default, Visual Studio 2013 configures a setting in an AnyCPU project to "Prefer 32-bit". If you unselect the check box, it should run as a 64-bit application on a 64-bit operating system. However, HexSight 64-bit must be installed to be used in 64-bit processes.
