I was curious if the new Blackberry Enterprise Server Express 5.0.4 is compatible with Windows Web Server 2008 R2.  The Blackberry compatibility guide states it is compatible with Windows Server 2008 R2 but I can't find any information related to the 'Web Server' edition of 2008 R2.

Yes, we ran it on a small 2008 r2 server dedicated to BES Express until recently when we moved from BB ti iPhone.  It worked fine.
You will likely violate Microsoft licensing by installing BES on a 2008 Server-Web Edition. The licensing expressly forbids making it an Application Server.

Q. Can I use the Web Server as a file server or an application server?
A. No. Windows Web Server 2008 can be used solely to deploy Internet
facing Web pages, Web sites, Web applications, Web services, and
POP3 mail serving.

Oh, I didn't read that correctly, I thought it was 2008 server R2, not web. Yes, you are probably correct.

Thank you for pointing that out.  I have decided to go with Server 2008 R2 Standard instead of the web edition for licensing purposes.
