last time i used was c3d 2011 debugging with visual studio 2010. which says x64 can't debug.
so now using c3d 2012 but don't have visual studio in this new company. they said i can order one so may as well get the vs 2012. so if we get this can i debug civil 3d dll now? or does it even work with civil 3d programming since visual studio 2012 is so new?
Actually, It is possible to debug on 64bit. And you can also develops with VS express, which is free. please refer to these links,
This tool helps you creating projects with VS2010 or VS 2010 Express more quickly, especially for Express, this tool sets up the debug setting automatically. It works for Civil 3D 2013 as well.

I did a bit of research the other night after seeing your post ( and seeing I have rebuild my home laptop to 64 bit which I use for most of my programming) and the Edit and Continue issue for VS running on 64 bit does not appear to have been fixed in VS 2012 apparantly the debug modal is written in 32 bit hence the problem.
Some poeple have it working but target a x86 CPU for the build, I tried this but as Civil3d is 64 bit it will not load the 32 bit assembly.
One suggestion is that you have a virtual machine with 32 bit and do the development in that and then when really do you final build on the 64 bit machine.
i'll just stick with my express edition and just kill the program each time to debug and edit. pretty used to it already. maybe one day it can do this. one day.
