Terminal Server - Changing from Office 2010 64-bit to Office 2010 32-bit

Hi all,

I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 (64-bit) Terminal Server that has Office 2010 (64-bit) installed on it.

I need to downgrade Office to the 32-bit version.

Does anyone have any experience with this and are there any Gotchya's?

Will my Terminal Server Office 2010 license key work for the 32-bit version? Will all my Outlook profiles still work after the move to 32-bit? Anything else I should look out for or be aware of?

Thanks for reading.

I don't see any problem here, simply uninstall the x64 edition and reinstall it with 32-bit installer.


1. License key has noting to do with 32-bit and 64-bit. The same license key can be applicable to both editions.

2. Outlook profile is compatible with the two editions, too.
