Development Studio compatibility with 64 bit Windows Server OS.
Is Development Studio compatible with 64 bit Windows server OS?
Does the Development Studio have support for 64 bit?
This is the guideline.
With a 64 bit OS, always use the 64 bit installer.
With a 32 bit OS, always use the 32 bit installer. The machine architecture does not matter most probably. It is the OS that determines which installer has to be used.
WSS 2.0 and SPS 2003 only runs in WOW64 mode in 64 bit OS. And the Service Pack 2 has to be installed for this to work.
WSS 3.0 and MOSS 2007 in 32 bit on a 64 bit OS is not supported. Therefore, in 64 bit OS, IIS must be in 64 bit mode for WSS 3.0 and MOSS 2007.
