+Visual Studio preferred tool architecture (``x64`` or empty).
+The :ref:`Visual Studio Generators` for VS 2013 and above support optional
+selection of a 64-bit toolchain on 64-bit hosts by specifying a ``host=64``
+value in the :variable:`CMAKE_GENERATOR_TOOLSET` option.  The value of this
+variable indicates the selected toolchain architecture preference.  Note
+that this is only a preference specified in the generated project files.
+MSBuild may still choose a different tool architecture, such as when on
+a 32-bit host.
