    Client 32 bit / Server 64 bit


    Currently I'm running a Windows Server 2003 Standard Ed, 32 bit
    with clients using Windows XP PRO SP2, 32 bit.

    I'm planning to migrate clients to Windows 7, 64 bit.

    Server will remain the same.

    Do you think I could have any problem ?

    Thanks.

    There can be some problem with programs not working probably and missing drivers when moving from 32-bit to 64-bit.

    But it depends on how old the client/hardware is and what kind of programs you're using.

    As long as your software supports it your fine. It usually doesnt matter what the server is running when compared to the client, unless perhaps the server is running a much older OS that doesnt support client functions right out of the box.
