Host vs Target

I just got a notice to get the new Intel System Studio Beta.  I have to choose between "Windows Host" and "Windows Target."  What is the difference?

Intel System Studio is targeted toward analysis of embedded systems such as phones or tablets.  As such it is typical for the analysis to be done on a host system and remotely connect to a target system.  So if one uses a windows laptop to analyse results from tests run on a windows phone, then one has a windows target and a windows host.  Using the same windows laptop to analyse results from an android tablet would be a windows host and an android target.

Would the host system be able to build a C++ application that would run on a Desktop computer?

Yes, the target and host can be the same machine. If your target platform is a desktop computer or other non-embedded system one would probably be using Parallel Studio XE, but not necessarily.
