64-bit supported configurations
Installing and running Microsoft Dynamics CRM and connecting to database, reporting services, and e-mail components running on other 32-bit computers is generally supported. For example:
- Exchange Server 2007 and Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 editions, which are available only for 64-bit systems, are supported, and can run 64-bit, or 32-bit, editions of the Microsoft Dynamics CRM E-mail Router.
- Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Outlook includes a 64-bit version that can be installed on any of the supported 64-bit Windows operating systems.
- The 32-bit version of Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Outlook can be installed and run on a Windows 64-bit operating system but the version of Outlook must be 32-bit.
32-bit versions of SQL Server 2008 database engine are not supported with Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Server. You cannot use a computer that is running a SQL Server 2008 32-bit edition as the database server for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Server.
