Localized Operation System on Empower 3 Clients

We plan an upgrade of our Empower 2 System to Empower 3 (in future the new Empower server will run under a Windows 2008 R2 OS, English). The operation system on the new LAC/E then will be Win 7 46 Bit, English. Actually our clients (workstations) run under Win XP 32 Bit, German.Now our IT-department starts to upgrade all our clients (actually running under Win XP 32 Bit, German) to Window 7, 32 Bit, German. But Windows 7, 32 Bit isn't supported under Empower 3. As an interim solution it is possible to install a Windows 7, 64 Bit, German on our clients for Empower 3. In the waters forum discussion following workaround is posted (a file was attached):Unable to install Empower 3 on Localized ComputerPCS No: 47533After installation of Empower 3 on Server, LAC/E and clients the entire system will be validated.Now my first question:Is it possible to run a correct validation (we work in a GxP environment) with localized clients, configured with the above mentioned workaround?And my second question:Is there any time line for running Windows 7, 32 Bit under Empower 3?

  • Is it possible to run a correct validation (we work in a GxP environment) with localized clients, configured with the above mentioned workaround? Yes for the interim this must be performed manually, However, it wil be addressed in Empower 3 Feature Release 1.

    Is there any time line for running Windows 7, 32 Bit under Empower 3? There is no plan at present to support Win 7 32 bit.
