We seem to have coined a new phrase, well okay, it’s new to me at least! Bit-ness. For example “What bit-ness is Outlook?”. What this means is which architecture of Outlook are you running? 32 bit or 64 bit? I guess saying bit-ness is easier than architecture, and it’s definitely easier to spell !
So why is it important?
Well the Enterprise Vault 9.0.1 Outlook Add-in can work with Outlook 2010 32 bit and Outlook 2010 64 bit. It’s the first Add-in that works with Outlook in this way. There is one problem that was uncovered during the development of the add-in and that relates to Windows Search/WDS.
Windows Search/WDS can be used to index Vault Cache data. However, the bit-ness of Windows and Outlook has to match, otherwise Windows Search/WDS can’t index the .DB files.
So if you have 32 bit Windows, and 32 bit Office, you’re good to go.. that hasn’t changed....
