MS Office 2010 32-bit

I have to deploye an Office 2010 to the client.  They have some apps running on the server that are not compatible with Office 2010 64-bit.  Only 32-bit. Are they any limitation with Office 32-bit in reation to Exchange 2010 or anything else?

heres the actual microsoft recommendation text..

The recommendations for which edition of Office 2010 to install are as follows:

If users in your organization depend on existing extensions to Office, such as ActiveX controls, third-party add-ins, in-house solutions built on previous versions of Office, or 32-bit versions of programs that interface directly with Office, we recommend that you install 32-bit Office 2010 (the default installation) on computers that are running both 32-bit and 64-bit supported Windows operating systems.

If some users in your organization are Excel expert users who work with Excel spreadsheets that are larger than 2 gigabytes (GB), they can install the 64-bit edition of Office 2010. In addition, if you have in-house solution developers, we recommend that those developers have access to the 64-bit edition of Office 2010 so that they can test and update your in-house solutions on the 64-bit edition of Office 2010.
nope, the only reason to use the 64bit version is when you are using extremely large excel spreadsheets (above 2GB).
In fact currently because of all the add in's etc Microsoft do not recommend using the 64bit version.

Hope that helps!
