Absolutely. It will install it in the (x86) folder. Works like a charm :)

Are you talking about trying to install 32 bit Exchange 2003 onto 64 bit Windows 2003 operating system? If so I didn't think that this was a supported configuration. Has anyone actually done this?

Can Exchange 2003 be installed on 64-bit editions of Windows Server 2003

I didn't think it could be done either:

It'd be interesting to hear from anyone that's actually done it.

Same with E5.5 running on Win 2000.  They said 'don't do it', but it worked perfectly.
Exchange 5.5 was supported on Windows 2000, but Exchange 2000 on Windows 2003 wasn't supported at all because of the changes to IIS.

I was thinking of the popup message that appears when you install it, that says "This program does not run correctly on this version of Windows."

everyone......tried and it didnt work!!!!!!
Thanks for getting back - at least now we know.  Can you tell us what happened when you tried?  Did it just detect the 64-bit OS and refuse to contimue?
you know that screen it normally gives about not compatiable but you get the continue option... that one without the continue option!
Can't argue with that.
