  • According to this post you cannot upgrade your 32 bit Operating system to 64 Bit. You have to re-install windows which means you have to re-install and re-configure biztalk again on a 64 OS.

    BizTalk Server 2009 Standard Edition does not support native 64-bit hosting. BizTalk Server 2009 Enterprise, Developer, Branch, and Evaluation Editions support native 64-bit hosting. BizTalk 2009 Enterprise edition can run on 64 bit OS and the hosts can be 64 Bit and 32 Bit both.

    According to this link By default, all adapters can run in 32-bit mode on 32-bit Windows and on WOW64 on 64-bit Windows. You can also see the list of adapters which natively run in 64-Bit. I am not sure which adapters you are talking about that are not supported in 64-Bit installation of BizTalk.

  • Hi Harpeet,

    First of all you have looked at 2006R2 64-bit support (that is link in your question) and you should review 64-bit support for BizTalk 2009. Futhermore I suggest reading the discussion in this thread and this post. Finally you can also contact MS Support.
