Run IIS in 32 bit mode


1. Overview

In order to connect to Excel or via ODBC, it may be necessary to install 32-bit drivers on your Dundas BI server. For example, some ODBC drivers are only available in 32-bit as opposed to 64-bit.

This article shows you how to run your Dundas BI IIS application pool in 32-bit mode so that the 32-bit drivers will function correctly with Dundas BI.

2. Run your application pool in 32-bit mode

In IIS 7, each application pool has a setting to run as 32-bit or 64-bit individually.

To check or change this setting, first launch IIS Manager.

Select Application Pools in the Connections pane.
