    Yes

    1 for 32-bit installation of Softwares
    2 for 64-bit installation of Softwares

    You could even run MSCONFIG to obtain further details about the server.

    hi satya - where can i confirm a server is 32/64 bit as i can't spot in msconfig anything that relates to this? Also the fact that 2 folders exist isn't always reliable in case someone has created a second folder!

    Trev, if you follow Admin instructions you will find what you want.
