Another STSDEV shortcoming

I just created a development machine that is 64bit. In order to keep using STSDEV you have to go into your build targets and change the $(ProgramFiles) token to the actual hard-coded path of your program files directory, otherwise it defaults to the 32 bit program files directory.

Just do a find and replace.

In case of mine I was using 32 bit version of visual studio 2008 [64 bit is not available] on 64 bit Windows 7 box hence I was facing the same issue, but I was able to fix it by simply using the "junction folders" feature of Windows 7 by running the following script,

mklink /j "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12" "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12"

Above script will allow the access to 12 hive folder from both program files directories

Hope this will help somebody
