Is there a SQL Server 2005 32-bit version that I could load onto the 32 bit processor?

Thanks to all of you for your assistance, Kevin

There are 32-bit and 64-bit version of all of SQL Server 2000, 2005 and 2008.

The 64-bit version of SQL Server 2000 is for database services only, most other components run only at 32-bit.

There are some 64-bit restrictions in SQL Server 2005 - the main one I know of is that AMO (Analysis services Management Objects) run only in 32-bit but can manage a 64-bit instance of SSAS. Also, last time I looked I could not find a 64-bit version of SQL 2005 Express with Advanced Services on the MS download site.

There are no 64-bit restrictions with SQL Server 2008 that I know of.

On DOS Command Prompt run the command below to know what sort of processor running on the server.

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

Try xp_msver. It returns lots of information on the processor, the Windows version, SQL Server and more.

Interesting thread, and some good info.

Here's the weird one. What if you have a 32bit VM on a 64bit host. do you want to know the host platform? I'm curious if this ever matters. I don't think so, but I wonder if I'm overlooking something.

You can determine what version of OS you are running by looking at

Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Information

[Note: I am running windows server 2008 R2 & it works for me]

also, for sql server, this works for me select serverproperty('edition')
