+How to build the Win32 x86_64 core fragment:
+1. Prerequisites
+- Install Windows SDK 7.1. If the SDK is not installed in the default location or if you want to try a different SDK, modify setenv64.bat accordingly.
+- Make sure your JAVA_HOME environment variable is set and points to a 64 bit JDK (C:\Program Files\Java\jdkX.X.X not C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdkX.X.X )
+2. Build and install
+- In a command prompt, execute setenv64.bat.
+The command prompt should turn to a different color and print a message about targeting x64.
+- Execute build64.bat
+This will build the dlls and executables, copy them to org.eclipse.cdt.core.win32.x86_64\os\win32\x86_64 then clean the build directories.
+Optionally, you can use nmake /f TARGET directly. Refer to for valid targets.
