Operating System Requirements

Visual Studio 2005

All components of Team Foundation Server are fully supported on 32-bit Microsoft Server operating systems. Microsoft also provides 64-bit versions of Windows Server 2003. You can install some, but not all of, Team Foundation components on these 64-bit operating systems. Use the following sections to learn what components are appropriate for your operating system configuration 

Installation on 32-bit Server Operating Systems

The following 32-bit server operating systems are supported for installing Team Foundation Server:

  • Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition, with Service Pack 1 (SP1) installed

  • Microsoft Windows Server® 2003 R2 operating system, Standard Edition

  • Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition, with Service Pack 1 (SP1) installed

  • Microsoft Windows Server® 2003 R2 operating system, Enterprise Edition

  • Windows Server 2003 Datacenter Edition, with Service Pack 1 (SP1) installed

  • Microsoft Windows Server® 2003 R2 operating system, Datacenter Edition

Installation on 64-bit Server Operating Systems

Microsoft provides 64-bit versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system for both workstation and server computers. A 64-bit system requires special design considerations that differ from the 32-bit operating system design. This includes considerations for firmware, hard disk partitions, and device drivers.

For more information about 64-bit versions of the Microsoft Windows Server® 2003 operating system, visit the Microsoft Web site (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=73902). For more information about the Microsoft Windows Server® XP Professional x64 Edition operating system, visit the Microsoft Web site (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=73901).

Team Foundation Server supports running the Team Foundation data-tier and Microsoft SQL Server 2005 on both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. Team Foundation Server requires that the application tier run in a native 32-bit environment. The application tier does not support WOW64 or native modes. The following table shows the components you can install on specific 64-bit operating systems.
