I need to update the Msi.dll (Microsoft Installer) from 3.1 to 4.5 on a windows server 2003 with IIS 6.0.  When I went to there were three files.


The web server I'm loading this on is a virtual  serve on the blades (water cooled server).  Which one do I download?

    X86 = 32 bit processor
    X64 = AMD or Intel 64bit processor
    Ia64 = Intel Itanium processor.

    the ia64.exe is for the intel itanium processor line
    x64 is for all other 64 bit processors
    x86 is for 32 bit processors

    You need to install the version that matches the virtual machine's processor type.

    on your server right click my computer and select properties.

    if it is 64 bit it will say windows server 2003 64 bit

    otherwise its the 32 bit (x86) version
