Setting up development environment for sharepoint 2010

I need to setup a development environment for sharepoint 2010 for visual studio 2010. The problem I had is my host machine is 32 bits which had visual studio 2010 installed. As far as I understand sharepoint 2010 are only allowed to install on a 64 bits machine. Is there anyway I can install sharepoint 2010 on a 32 bits machine because sharepoint 2007 are able to.

If not is it possible to debug remotely from a developer machine to a sharepoint host on another 64 bit machine? I wonder what is the usual practice for the development environment for sharepoint.

Or is it possible to download a VM image with all configured? Mayb I can VM on my host machine? Please let me know if anyone of u have a link for me to download the a VM image for me to use?

To host a 64 bit Virtual Machine, your host operating system must be running a 64 bit Host Operating System, and your processor must be enabled for Intel Virtualisation Technology (Intel-VT).

To install a 64 bit application, you must have a 64 bit processor and operating system installed.

1. No, you can't install SharePoint 2010 on 32bit OS
2. Yes, you can debug remotely. It is one of recommended practices for SP development. Please note that you need to do some manual steps to set up remote debugging: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bt727f1t.aspx
3. well. no MS Hyper-V for you (x64 only) so you can only use some 3rd-party virtualization tools and they are usually not for free. My recommendation is to reinstall your OS to Win2008 Server x64 or use 2nd option (see above)

When ransomware hits your clients, what do you do?

MSPs: Endpoint security isn’t enough to prevent ransomware.
As the impact and severity of crypto ransomware attacks has grown, Webroot has fought back, not just by building a next-gen endpoint solution capable of preventing ransomware attacks but also by being a thought leader.

So you mean it is not possible to have a VM that have window server installed and a sharepoint on a 32 bits vista?

Another thought you could use a Cloud Provider, e.g. Amazon Elastic Cloud, and Develop on a Windows Instanace, and "Pay As You Go" for usage.

No, at least with MS virtualization.

You can use VMware Player or Virtualbox to host Virtual Machines on your computer, but only 32 bit Virtual Machines will function.

Meaning I will install a 32 bit VM on my 32 bits machine.
Next have a VM image of 64 bits window server that is installed with 64 bits sharepoint? Possible?

You will need a 64 bit processor and 64 bit operating system, and Intel-VT mode enabled in BIOS and supported to run a 64 bit virtual machine.

You cannot run a 64 bit virtual machine, on 32 bit hardware.
