Export exchange mailboxes to PST files from SBS 2008 server running exchange 2007

Hi ,
 I cant seem to install exchange management tools on a desktop because the client has to be 32 bit , I am on 64 but windows . I am unable to find a 64 bit client . Is there a work around ., I simply would like to be able to dump all users contacts tasks and calendars .. No mail into a PST file . Will I need to do this desktop by desktop ?

Unfortunately that's just how it was back then:

In order to export or import mailboxes to PST files the following requirements must be met:

- Export/Import to PST must be run from a 32 bit client machine with Exchange Management Tools installed (Version Exchange 2007 SP1 or later). The 32bit requirement comes from a dependency with the Outlook client.
- Either Outlook 2003 or Outlook 2007 must be installed on the client machine.
- The user running the task must be an Exchange Organization Admin or an Exchange Server Admin on the server where the mailbox to export/import lives.

You will want to use EMS that is installed on the 32-bit management server.

I'm sorry I just want to be clear if I go onto the SBS 2008 server console and  click on exchange management shell . I can run all the commands needed to give me full access to the mailbox and use Export mailbox to pst file on a location on the server.
I don't need a desktop to do this correct ?

You need a separate 32-bit server with Exchange Management Tools and Outlook installed.  The management tools are installed the same way you installed Exchange, just fire up your installation media and only select Management Tools and none of the other roles.

I need to setup a separate physical machine just to run a few PowerShell commands ?
why is that ? the commands are in the EMS on the SBS server .
what is the issue with my running them there ?

Is the server you're referring to 32-bit?  Does it have Outlook installed?  If not you can't use it.
