Yes, we've done this many times for clients, there are no issues, as long as you follow the well written guides. But any issues, jsut ask here.

http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1021635 has links to 2 KB's for the more common problems found during the migration, but most migrations go through without a hitch.

If you have the VC 2.5 U5 installation media, go into the vpx directory and run licenseserver.exe

If you go to http://downloads.vmware.com/d/info/datacenter_downloads/vmware_infrastructure_3/3_5 and select Drivers & Tools, you can find a download there for it, too.  It says 64192 so I suspect that this is an old version of it that may not install/run on x64 systems.  If it doesn't, then you may be stuck downloading VC 2.5 U5 or U6 and then running the .exe that I described above.

Install the license server on any Server 2003 32 bit server temporarily.
