32 bit versus 64 bit

Hi,

I have access networked across the server and five clients.

The server is due for replacement and is 32 bit.

The clients are windows 7 pro 64 bit.

The access versions on the server and clients is 32 bit.

The data tables for the access is on the server as a back end.


Questions:

Am I OK contining to run a 32 bit access program
Should there be any conversion to 64 bit

I am installing office 10 on several clients. Should this be 32 bit or 64 bit as a program

If I upgrade the server to Windows 12 is there a 32 bit version. Should it be 64 and if its 64 will I be able to run 32 bit Access program.

Sorry for all the questions but they are connected.

As long as all the code is in the front end which is a 32 bit system, no changes are necessary.

Unless you have a good reason to install 64 bit version of office it's recommended (also by Microsoft) to stick with the 32 bit version.

All Servers starting from 2008R2 are 64bit only - no choice here. But you are fine running 32bit applications, as said above. I would not consider using x64 apps if you do not need to.

No points,
Concur with above.  Use The 32 bit Office 2010.

Stick with the 32 bit version of Office.  Will require no mods for running under a 64bit OS.

<<Will require no mods for running under a 64bit OS.>>

 Actually, minior correction to that; in regards to the bits, no, but you might require some changes in your app in moving to a latter OS like Win 7.  For example, the \program files directories are protected and re-directed.

Depending on your application and what it does, it might cause a problem.  Sounds like your already past that hump however.

But in regards to the number of bits, no changes if you stick with 32 bit Office.
