Upgrading Windows Vista 32 bit to 64 bit Windows Server

Upgrading Windows Vista 32 bit to 64 bit Windows Server

I am planning on upgrading Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit to Windows Server 2008 Standard 64-bit (I have a quad core cpu which supports 64 bit and I have 4gb memory so can't see all of it at the moment).

"Almost all software written in the last 10 years is 32-bit (or greater) - I would say ""all"", but I've learned not to do this on SuperUser. I wouldn't worry too much about this if you have purchased your development software in this decade.

If not, you can always host your 16 bit software within a virtual machine."

If I was you, I would just go with the upgrade and simply run any old program in Virtual PC or another virtualisation program
