We need to purchase the 64-bit version of Windows 2003 Server Std
Edition because of the 4GB memory limitation in the 32-bit version.

This server will be used as a Terminal server with both thin-clients
and thick-clients (XP Pro and Vista Business) connecting to it. We
need to install MS Office 2007 and an accounting application on the
TS.

1. Can 32-bit applications install & run on a 64-bit Server operating
system?

2. In our particular application, are there any limitations/
disadvantages to the 64-bit version of the Server OS?

Thanks

1.) yes. There are some gotchas, however. Applications that use a driver
must have a 64-bit driver to work. Applications that are 16 bit, or have a
16-bit installer, don't work. There is no 16 bit support. Period. In
general, make sure you have appropriate drivers for all your hardware.
Ideally, make sure your applications officially support running on 64-bit,
and that they support running on a Terminal Server. Office 2007, for
example, only support TS with the Enterprise Edition. Make sure you have the
right version.

2.) No, the x64 versions of Windows are ideal for Terminal Services.

Dear Charlie,

Is it true? I read Office 2007 Enterprise is the only version running on
Terminal server 2003 x64?? I am running Office 2007 Standard on terminal
server 2003 x64 and i am having some troubles with some users when printing
in Word 2007.... Can this be the problem??

My understanding is that Office 2k7 Enterprise is the only version supported
on Terminal Services. (This is NOT 64bit specific, but terminal server
application mode specific.)
