    I have a Toshiba Satelite 2715XDVD/6.0 laptop with Windows 98 SE, Visual C++ 6.0, Partner-N64, N64 SDK 5.0, and Nintendo OS2.0L

    I'm planning on setting the Dolphin SDK up on my main computer sometime, but I've just never gotten around to doing so.

    The best way is how Chilly Willy did it. Closed source and very old kits do not do justice to homebrew.

    Gamecube/Wii: devkitPPC + libOGC + Crimson Editor on a Core i7 860 4GB RAM, running Windows XP 32 bit

    N64: I've used the above setup and even Win7 but debugging was done on MESS and not on real hardware.

    GC:

    Windows 7 32-bit
    8GB ram (4GB usable, but I dual boot into x64 for resource heavy stuff :))

    ODEM card w/random scsi cable I found in an old pc.

    N64:
    Virtualized WinXP Pro 32-bit

    Drivers for the ODEM and USB-EXI don't work on 64-bit. I don't think they ever made any anyway :(

    "Drivers for the ODEM and USB-EXI don't work on 64-bit. I don't think they ever made any anyway :("
    The SDK was originally created for Windows 2000 (there is no 64-bit version) and eventually moved over to XP with the 2004 release, the first 64 bit version of XP was released in 2005, so it'd make sense that there is no 64 bit support.

    You can use either the VS .NET prompt (when you have the ProDG integration) or cygnus to build GC things.
