How can I tell if I have the right installation files for the 2008 std SQL 64 bit?  I ran the installation rules and it said that the 64 bit processor and the 64 bit Operating system was not applicable.  I want my installation to be 64 bit.
in the installation files, I can see the x64 folder.  Where was I to specifiy the install to be 64 bit?

If install path is not contain x86 in it, you are ok.
If you have setup.exe in x64 folder - try to run it directly from the folder, after you install all prerequisites

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

It is the same download, so how do I get the right part?  when I open it up to the 64 bit there is a setup100.exe, is that it?

I am installing this download now.  It is asking for a key, I thought SQL did not need the key as it need the CAL's only.
