  • There is no 32-Bit version of OCS 2007 R2 only available in 64-Bit

    But if you want to test OCS 2007 that is only available in 32-Bit
    So if you want to test on 32-Bit your only option is OCS 2007

  • You can start here with the OCS 2007 SDK
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb632176.aspx

    This would be the correct forum for OCS Development.

    Enterprise pool is only if you want to host many thousands of people and provide High Availability.
    So probably in your DEV/TEST environment this is not a requirement.
    I would stick with STANDARD edition which is easier to setup.

  • SQL2005 SP2 is a requirement!
    Enterprise Edition Requires a separate SQL backend server (separate server)
    Standard Edition install MSDE on the same box

    Functionality is the same in both versions
