Using MS Access/32bit-64bit

Question
Hi Manish,
Maybe my question is very basic.I have an Access program(2000) and  run it on Windows Server2003(Enterprise Edition,32bit,4 GB RAM). If I want to upgrade to  Windows Server 2008,64bit can I still run my Access program(2000) on WS2008 64 bit? I have heard that because this program is written in 32bit I can not run it on 64bit. Could you explain if it is right or not?

Regards.

Answer
Hi Tina,

Any Access application designed on 32bit can run on 64Bit, but not the other way round. 64bit will not run on 32 bit architecture whether it is Win 2003 Server or any later server.

Whats the kind of application you are running pls provide more details if you want to.

Best regards
Manish Batola
