    Just FYI, 64-bit editions of Windows Server 2003 are NOT supported.

    really :), i read it in a book that it is however i have not tested on 2003-x64. May be you are right!

    It was a typo from Microsoft that has since been addressed (after your article was written). The installer is supposed to warn the user that the operating system is incompatible, but this function doesn’t seem to be working for users. The build service can be installed on Windows Server 2003 (x64), but the App tier cannot.
