Preliminary Office 2010 32 bit support is available in the v5.0 release. See this cross post from our beta forum for information on Office 2010 64 bit support:

Thanks so much for the feedback. Office 2010 64 bit beta testers are truly on the "bleeding edge" of software testing!
It is clear that there is a great deal of interest from our customers for 64 bit support. As we have said from the beginning, we will support the Office 2010 64 bit RTM release due out sometime next year. That said, 64 bit support will not be available in the initial v5.0 release. Once we get v5.0 out the door, we will investigate the steps required to convert to 64 bit and post our findings/timeline for support.
FYI - there are a couple of things that make 64 bit support harder than you might expect:
* Office 2010 is in BETA, meaning that we are currently developing against a shifting target.
* Many of the Microsoft development tools that we use have not been adapted for 64 bit support yet.
I suspect the above impacts every Office development shop, slowing 64 bit support for most add-ins.
I want to reiterate - we hear your requests loud and clear and we will support 64 bit Outlook 2010 just as soon as it is possible to do so! Thanks as always for your feedback.
Please comment here if you would like to be notified when 64 bit support is available. Thanks.
