Microsoft(R)Windows(R)Server 2003

I have been given a copy of Windows 2003 in order to trial another program which must run on Windows Server 2003 at home.

To date I have discovered that Windows Server 2003 can be used with 64bit only, and Windows Server 2003(R2) can be used with either 32bit or 64bit.

When I initiate setup from my disc the initial screen displays Microsoft(R)Windows(R)Server 2003 could you please advice what the requirements are for this version.

My motherboard is 32bit only so this information is clearly crucial.

W2k3 server will run in 32 bit unless it is a 64-bit version

Huh?  Maybe the CD you were given is 64 bit only, but 2003 comes in BOTH 32 and 64 bit versions.

I believe my question specifies tthat I am aware that they come in both 64bit and 32bit. What I would like to know is what is Microsoft(R)Windows(R)Server 2003.

The specifications talk about Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 but no mention of Microsoft(R)Windows(R)Server 2003, surely a "Windows Expert" has seen this written on an installation screen and can recall which version.

Is there any where I can go on the disc which will give this exact information or do I need to go through each file with a fine tooth comb..

The (R) just means "Registered Trademark". It's not a particular version of Windows Server 2003.

Thank you the fact that it was not in the standard "Registered Trademark" emblem but simply (R) confused me.

@Marina2006...what happened to "could you please advice what the requirements are for this version?"

I believe I answered that in my second comment...how come that wasn't accepted?

You will note that my question is not really asking whether W2k3 server runs on 32 bit or 64-bit but rather what is required for Windows Server 2003 (R), your comments therefore did not answer my question or solve my problem.

If you had responded that there is no (R) version that this is the way Microsoft writes  Registered Trademark on the setup screen my version could therefore be either 32 or 64 bit then this would have answered my question.

Clearly the fact that there is nothing on the Microsoft Site which relates to an (R) version means that your link was meaningless I had already been there but given that there is an R2 version but no (R) I think my confusion is understandable.

(R2) is not the conventional way of displaying Registered Trademark.
