I was compiling from a command prompt that already had vcvars called.

I was trying to compile gsi & gsc, not some scheme source.

It's for compiling gambit-c with visual studio.

Trying misc\vc2008.bat from a x64 Win64 VS2010 command prompt gives 64 bit  
gsi.exe & gsc.exe
Unfortunatelly,unlike 32 bit versions, they crash on launch.
