I need to install a 32-bit app on a 64-bit 08 R2 terminal server. Is there anything I need to turn on so it will support the 32-bit app?

32bit apps should work without any problems.
take care that usually the programs directory is the program files (x86) as well as the registry settings are located at hklm\software\wow6432node but everything else should work fine

Nope you should be all set. The server will recognize that it is a 32 bit program and run it as necessary. I have many 64 bit servers that run 32 bit products.

Some programs allow the 32-bit version to be installed on a 64-bit OS but it depends on the software.

I would have to concur that you should be all set. There is nothing to turn on. You will occasionally run into 32 bit applications that will not run properly on a 64 bit OS but there is nothing you will be able to do about it. They are usually applications that are not as widely used and are poorly written or originally written for 16 bit.
