    I have a COM client that is a 64 bit application and a 32 bit COM server -
    local server (exe).

    Should it work this way on Windows 2003 R2 64 bit or is it something wrong
    with code in my client or with server registration.

    Currently it does work and I would like to find some kind of documentation
    that explains whether it is possible to run things this way or not.

    It is possible for a 64 bit application to communicate with a 32 COM executable through standard COM calls.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "is it something wrong with code in my client or with server registration". I assume you are having
    difficulties. If so, perhaps you can elaborate.
