Is windows server 2008 compatible with xp software?

LKT :

Hello and thank you for your question

LKT :

Yes, it is compatible as long as you use the compatibility mode.

Customer:

there is this accounting program that we use at work which works on windows server 2000 and xp. the program has to be installed on the server and all the desktops. will this software work with windows server 2008 naturally? Or only on windows 2008 xp compatible mode?

LKT :

Its not likely to work natively, but give it a shot. If it does not you can fall back on comparability mode.

LKT :

Let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks.

Customer:

what's the difference server 2008 between 32 bit and 64 bit?

LKT :

The difference is how the CPU will handle the processing and memory. Basically 64bit can handle more memory more efficiently, some programs can only run on 32bit computers so you have to check with the software developers system requirements.

LKT :

So in a 32bit system you will have less memory you can install but can run older legacy programs, in a 64bit system you can install a lot more memory but cannot run some older software packages.
