32bit application check for upgrading from x86 W2K3 to a x64 O/S
I have a task to upgrade our remaining W2003 virtual machines to W2012 some of which are x86 versions.
I understand x64 O/S provides syswow64, an emulator that enables 32 bit applications to run. Sounds good in theory but has anyone experienced issues running 32 bit apps on x64 O/S after upgrading. Short of contacting application vendors for compatibility issues are there any tools available to check for compatibility prior to upgrading.
Many thanks in advance
