    Does StarTeam support 64-bit environments?


There are several aspects to this question, but in general, StarTeam is not supported on 64-bit OS platforms for either the server or client components. Specifically, we have not tested StarTeam on any 64-bit OS platform and do not support the StarTeam server OR client running on a 64-bit operating system. We definitely do not recommend trying to deploy any StarTeam components on a 64-bit OS platform.

We have not tested releases prior to StarTeam 2008 on 32-bit OS platforms talking to SQL Server or Oracle servers running on 64-bit OS platform either. While this might work, that is not a configuration we can officially support. Our primary concern is that even if it does work initially customers could run into trouble down the road and we wouldn"t have any way to diagnose or resolve issues, including database corruption.

StarTeam 2008 server has been tested for use with the 64-bit Oracle DBMS and we support the use of 64-bit Oracle with this release. StarTeam 2008 server has not been tested with 64-bit SQL Server.
