Resource kit for Windows Server 2003 R2

I need to use one of the tools from the Server 2003 Resource Kit, but we are running Server 2003 R2. I know that the software is not to be used on 64 bit Server OS, but MS give no indication whatsoever about using the standard kit on R2. Alternatively, is there an easy way to run a program (EFS from Chimera) as a service on the server?

Hi brianx2t,

64bit has some support for 32 bit applications    have you tried installing?   if it wont work then it wont install     i cant find any documentation on it as yet

Case closed - after some digging it turns out that Windows Server 2003 R2 just means that it's got Service Pack 1 included (with a few extras)! Installed the software without problem.
thought that might be the case - R2 is just standard on drugs.... :)
Yeah, R2 comes in either a 32bit flavor or 64bit.

And FYI, the 2003 resource kit DOES NOT work on the 64 bit OS's (currently).
