Q: What kind of SAP license does the SAP I enter in the server component wizard need?
A: The server component can work with an Indirect Access Instance license or a Pro license. (WARNING: This is Boyum's Interpretation of SAP License Rules. You should always confirm with your SAP LPE)
Q: Why is there no 64-bit B1UP Server component?
[Update: From B1UP 2022.02 the Server Component is 64-bit as SAP Business One 10 is 64-bit only]
A: There are multiple reasons:
1. Since the server component never need to use more than 2 GB of memory (max for a 32-bit app) there is no benefit
2. Statistics show that still, almost 75% of all SAP Installations run 32 bit
There is nothing technically that stops us from building a 64bit version of the server component but if we are to include both a 32-bit and 64-bit version there is a risk that someone installs both on the server and the two would conflict (do the same task twice). By only providing a 32-bit version we reduce that risk.
