|Subject:||64-bit deploy project does not produce 64-bit Framework prereq|

I have figured out my first problem. In order to target 32-bit processors
and 64-bit processors, one has to have 2 separate vdproj projects.
I have a 32-bit app that requires the .NET Framework 2.0. In order to
install on a 64-bit machine, the 64-bit version of the framework must be
installed. As a test project, I created a new Setup & Deployment project in
VS2005. I set the TargetPlatform to x64. I set the prereqs were .NET
Framework 2.0, MDAC 2.8, and Windows Installer 3.1, and I selected the
"Download prerequisistes from the same location as my application." If I run
the bootstrapper setup.exe that is generated, I still get "Prerequisite check
for system component .NET Framework 2.0 failed with the following error
"This version of the .NET Framework 2.0 is not supported on a 64-bit
operating system. Contact your application vendor.""
So shouldn't VS2005 have put a 64-bit .NET Framework 2.0 along side my .MSI?
I do not see a 64-bit version of the framework under C:\Program
Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\SDK\v2.0\BootStrapper\Packages. How do I get
it there so it is an option in VS2005 as a prereq? What am I doing wrong?
