    Hello.

    If I have a Windows Server 2008 Enterprise 32bit Retail license, can i use this on a Windows Server 2008 64bit computer?

    My MSDNAA and MSDN licenses works both on 32bit and 64bit, but somebody is telling me that retail licenses do not work on both system.

    Anybody here that can confirm that? Or confirm that I'm right?
