I'm pretty sure there is no 32bit exchange 2007, so no that wouldn't work.
there are ways of installing management tools on 32 bit systems but not the server

Just to add for harel66 there is a 32bit version of exchange 2007 it is only not supported for production environments. Only for tests, it was introduced for training purposes.

I have never tried to restore a exchange database from 64 bit to a 32 bit environment, but I don't think the database format will difference between both. So if this is for a non production environment it might be possible.


Seems the copy of exchange that was given to me was this x86 version that Microsoft said was not for production use.
