Hi  br_ms,

as i know there are nearly not problems with the upgrade from BC 4.7 to 4.8.

Please check SAP notes 1275665 - Business Connector 4.8 Service Release 4 (SR4)
and the FAQ's
http://service.sap.com/~form/sapnet?_SHORTKEY=01100035870000719352&

BC 4.8 supports Windows Server 2008 auf x64 (64 Bit)
Please have a look in SAP note 1094412 - Release and Support Strategy of SAP Business Connector 4.8.
but:
"On Windows the Microsoft Runtime DLLs version 8.0 are required. Please see note 684106 (with regard to "vcredist_<platform>.exe", not "R3DLLINS.EXE"!) for instructions."

The documentation for BC can be found in the installation pakage (html pages) ...some documentation is available here:
