    Exchange 2007 is a 64-bit program, are you trying to install it on a 32-bit OS? dme

    Can you tell what exactly is on the CD? I have received CDs that an image file burned to them instead of the contents of the image. For example, the .iso file itself was burned to the CD and not the contents. I had to copy the .iso off the CD and burn an image from the file image. Just a thought.

    Are you running Exterprise on a 64-bit processor? If you right click on My Computer, and check the OS does it say 64-bit? If you don't know for sure that you are running Windows 2003 Enterprise 64-bit edition, then I suspect you are not, and that would be your problem. Exchange 2007 is a 64-bit application and if it sees your Server is 32-bit, then that would be a correct error message. dmw

    With 64bit it's all or nothing you can't mix a 32bit OS with a 64bit application. You need to obtain a 64bit version of Windows Server 2003 and install on your server and then install Exchange 2007 64bit edition.

    You are attempting to mix and match the OS and Exchange; one is 32-bit and the other is 64-bit. I responded to a similar problem in another discussion thread. There are a couple of ways to handle this; the best way is to make sure that you have a 64-bit domain controller to run the Active Directory and Domain Preparation commands on. This server must be in the same site as the schema master by the way. You can integrate a temporary 64-bit DC into the site and run the commands on it and then decommission the server after allowing for replication of all changes. Alternatively, you can leave the DC in place which is a better option and may yield better performance versus a 32-bit DC due to increased caching ability.
