VSTS 2005 – using TFS SDK to write code on my x64 box

I was trying to follow a source sample to obtain the VSTS project list, but got the following System.BadImageFormatException on the library file [ Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Client.dll ].


===== Exception =====


System.BadImageFormatException was unhandled
  Message=”Could not load file or assembly ‘Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Client, Version=8.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a’ or one of its dependencies. An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format.”
  StackTrace:
       at TfsApplication1.Program.Main(String[] args)
       at System.AppDomain.nExecuteAssembly(Assembly assembly, String[] args)
       at Microsoft.VisualStudio.HostingProcess.HostProc.RunUsersAssembly()
       at System.Threading.ExecutionContext.Run(ExecutionContext executionContext, ContextCallback callback, Object state)
       at System.Threading.ThreadHelper.ThreadStart()


===== More findings ===== 


It appears that the library cannot be used on my x64 box, and the workaround is to change the target platform of my project to [ x86 platform ].


–> Right-click on the project


  –> Properties


    –> Build


      –> Platform target: x86
