Can MAPILab Outlook Advanced security 32 bit add-in run on a 64bit Virtual server, Server 2012 R2

My client uses Outlook 2007 32 bit on Windows Server 2012 RS 64 bit virtual server, with all the users running terminal services and individual outlook profiles, not using Exchange server.

I'm trying to handle the outlook allow access security prompt that appears when sending emails via outlook from an Access database or 3rd party application.

I want to install MAPILab Advanced outlook security add-in as this appears to be the most recommended solution from all the forums I've read.

The clients network administrators have concerns about this being a 32 bit add-in and if it's compatible with their 64 bit virtual server.

I've posted a question in MapiLab's support forum 5 days ago but haven't had any response yet
Can the experts please advise if it's safe to install the MAPILab add-in

my apologies for not being clear, the 32bit MAPILab add-in is to fix a pesky outlook security prompt when 3rd part applications try to send emails via outlook.
Do you know if the same issue exists for Outlook x64 or has Microsoft fixed the problem with their over exuberant security

it isn't a BUG it was introduced to remove a security hole.. Security and convenience are always at odds with each other.. you increase one it decreases the other.  It will never be removed only strengthened

true I'm with you on that issue.

regards this question, my Client is concerned about what to do when he eventually upgrades to a 64 bit version of Office
Do you know if the same issue exists and MS Access cannot send emails via outlook without a security warning, and a 3rd part add-in not from microsoft is the only solution to fixing it ?

Microsoft actually recommends that users use the 32bit version of office because of the add-in  compatibility problem

update FYI
my client installed Outlook 2007 ver 12.0 (32 bit)
and the MAPILAb add-in 32 bit has been working fine without any issue
as David Johnson correctly advised using the 32 bit version of Outlook was a trouble free outcome for us

I can't comment on how the 64 bit ver of Outlook handles access to the address book and attaching files to emails via Access
I would concur with David and use the 32 bit version
