I know it hasn’t been supported for a while now, but I have been using some 32-bit hardware for testing non-production, non-critical stuff in PeopleSoft for a while now. It’s been okay for just playing around. While the 64-bit was certified, all of the Windows binaries were still actually 32-bit. Linux was a different story … the binary on the Linux side was actually 64-bit and would not work on a 32-bit machine.
Well, I tried to install PeopleSoft 9.2, which requires PeopleTools 8.53. It doesn’t work even on Windows. This is the error message:
Here’s the text if you can’t see the image:
The image file <path>\psadmin.exe is valid, but is for a machine type other than the current machine.
So, no more cheating. If you want to play around with PeopleSoft, you have to have 64-bit hardware.
