    ADPrep by default is 64bit, looks like your using a 32bit one which means you need to use the other version which has 32 appended to the end of it. Full details are in the Technet Guide on it as you would expect

    take a look at the commands under the 64 bit error messages.

    I have run commands using adprep32.exe and nothing happens

    So you're running an AD domain at 2003 level, with a 2008 DC? Have you got a 2003 DC too? If so, try running adprep on the 2003 DC.

    What do you get if you run adprep32 without switches or with '/?'?

    Hang on, are your DC's 32bit?
    Isn't R2 64bit only? If your DCs are currently 32bit then they wont be able to upgrade to R2 without a complete wipe and re-install!

    The new 2008 R2 x64 DCs will be on brand new hardware.

    I am trying to run this on the old 2008 32 bit DC's

    Ah right fair enough...
    I notice ADprep32.exe is being run from C:\ , did you copy all the files in the adprep directory there as well?
