Description
The current create.bat script can only create visual studio projects for 32-bit targets (Win32), it should also be possible to create 64-bit targets.

SUGGESTED FIX

Suggested fix is to generated two different project files, one for 32-bit target and one for 64-bit targets. 

While it would be great to have both targets in the same project, the current scripts and tools are very not written in a way that makes it easy to fix this. The simple solution is two different projects: jvm-i486.vcproj and jvm-amd64.vcproj.

The create.bat script will detect which target to create by checking which version of the cl.exe compiler is in the PATH.
