I admit that for years I was convinced only the paid version of Visual Studio can compile 64-bit EXE files. It's just because I never really needed to create one in my personal projects. Now I have to do it (what for? - I will show in one of my next posts) and as it turns out, it's perfectly possible and easy to do also in Visual Studio Express. You just have to make some configuration because the "x64" platform is not shown by default. So to compile 64-bit executable in your Visual Studio 2013 Express:

You can now choose and build any configuration (Debug or Release) for any platform (Win32 or x64). For x64 platform, intermediate and output files will be written to subdirectories: x64\Debug\ and x64\Release\. Notice that for Win32, it's just Debug\ and Release\.
