Windows 2008 R2 Adprep - 32 and 64 bit

I know there are confusions around 32 bit and 64 bit versions of ADPREP.  Windows Server 2008 R2 includes a 32-bit version and a 64-bit version of Adprep.exe.  The 64-bit version runs by default.  If you want to run one of the Adprep.exe commands on a 32-bit computer, use the 32-bit version of Adprep.exe.  It is called Adprep32.exe.  In Windows 2008 R2, it is located in the \Support\Adprep folder. 



I have tried during hours to joint an domain controler w2008 32bits English, with an new stand alone server w2008R2 64 bits French.
I used de directory adprep from DVD w2008R2 French, to prepare the forest. No return from prompt (adprep32 /forest, then adprep /domainprep /gpprep).
When I check the version, it's always 44 (insteed of 47). S depromo fr stand alone fail. Many thank for your help.

Hi I have the same problem, adprep32 didn't return any info. Can you help?
The same situation, DC on WS2008 x86 and new machine on WS2008R2
