64-bit compiler for Win 7 (not IDE)

  1. Hi guys!

    I need to brush up on C / C++ and am looking for a compiler that is compatible with my OS, Windows 7 64 Bit.

    MingW is not fully featured on 64 Bit and may not be fully stable. I wasn't really interested in using Microsoft Visual Studio as I want only a text editor and compiler to program, not an IDE. I feel that would help me be more flexible and concentrate on coding.

    Also, if there are no 64 Bit compilers, will 32 Bit compilers work on x64?

    Look forward to your inputs.
