At the time 5.5 VCB support was being developed, the 64-bit VMware VCB 
framework was not available (though I think one has since been 
introduced). So TSM support is currently 32-bit Windows 2003.

There is no 5.5 server requirement for this.

The only dumb question is the one that goes unasked.
The command line is your friend.
"Good enough" is the enemy of excellence.
