[Developers] Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit

HI, don't know if this will help. I run Windows 7 64 bit on my (new) home PC, and went through a lot of pain (including tomcat not starting) getting openClinica and a bunch of other stuff up again. Eventually, I installed 32 bit versions of everything (except Windows and MS Office) - java jre, jdk & j2me, tomcat, openClinica, eclipse, etc. and it all hangs together now. Be cautious of the 64 bit versions, some of the software is for Itanium, not x86. Regards Mike

    Re: [Users] Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit
    Hi,

    My experience with the 64 bit versions of WIN server 2008 R2 as well as WIN7 professional is entirely positive. I never had any problem. JDK, JAVA, Tomcat all 64 bit and the 32 bit PSQL 8.x worked right away with OC. I have experimented with the 64 bit version of PLSQL with varying results, one thing is very obvious, the 64 bit versions ad the possibility to add lots if memory relay boosts performance.

    Regards

    Krister

    As I believe that is your issue. If that is not your issue please utilize tomcat’s mailing lists as your issue is with tomcat at this stage and not OpenClinica. The tomcat mailing lists information can be found here http://tomcat.apache.org/lists.html.

    Hi Mikael,

    Could you tell us where you got stuck with the install on Win 2008 64-bit on version 3.1.1? Did it have to do with any of the other software (Tomcat, Postgres, etc) or was it an error thrown upon startup?

    Thanks, Tom

    Thank you for the reply Janus!
    We also got OC 3.0.X to work with Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit. But OC 3.1.1 fails to install for us with the same platform.
    Have anyone sucessfully installed OC 3.1.1 on Win 2008 R2 64-bit? In that case, what version's did you use for the other dependent software?
    Thanks,
    Mikael

    Hi Mikael,
    I'm running a 3.0.4.2 Community Edition on a Win 2008 R2 virtual instance
    (host is HyperV) with Tomcat 6 and Postgres 9, and it works just fine.
    Best regards,
    Janus

    Sorry, I seen that this question has been up before, now that I searched
    the forum.
    The official dependecies for OC 3.1.1:
    Operating system(s): Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Redhat Enterprise
    Linux 4.0+
    Browsers: Internet Explorer 7.0, or 8.0 Mozilla Firefox 3.x
    JDK : 1.6.0
    Application server : Tomcat 6.0
    Database server : PostgreSQL 8.4 or Oracle 10g
    OpenClinica version for Upgrades only: OpenClinica 3.0.x
    It seems that OC will work with Windows Server 2008 R2 just as long as
    Tomcat 6.0 is used instead of Tomcat 7.0. PostgreSQL 9 also seems to be
    working, however it is not supported officially.
    Will there be an official support for Windows Server 2008 R2 in the near
    future? Still my questions remains if anyone has experienced any other
    issues with this platform except the one mentioned above.
    Thanks,
    Mikael
