Cinema 4D Version: 9.521

I just installed the free Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition and the Platform SDK on my XP64. Now, as the first step, I'm trying to convert the cinemasdk to 64bit using the 64bit-migration.pdf.
The first problem occurs already at step 3:
When trying to add a new solution platform, "x64" isn't available in the selection popup menu of the dialog window "New Solution Platform" and the checkbox "Create new project platforms" is disabled. I tried to type in "x64", but the mentioned checkbox stays disabled.
I read several postings about the express edition. Some say, you need to buy the visual studio, some say you just need to install the platform sdk.
Now my question is: Is it possible to compile 64bit plugins with the express edition or not? If the conversion is really so easy as described in the migration.pdf, I would buy the studio monster right now!
