Windows 7: Run the program in WoW64 mode

Run the program in WoW64 mode

I have developed a number of websites using Microsoft Access and Classic ASP. When I got my new Windows 7 machine I found that I was no longer able to develop on my local machine as I have in the past because it is 64 bit and Access us 32 bit. This is a bit of a disaster for me, as I need to be able to support these website.


I have read that a workaround is the run the program in WoW64 mode. I do not actually know what this means, nor how to implement it. Can anyone tell me what I can do to continue supporting these websites?


I have always been able to work locally then upload my work, but since I am told that the error message I am getting ("ADODB.Command error '800a0e7a' Provider cannot be found. It may not be properly installed.") indicates that there is this incompatibility, is there any way I can work around this, or was moving up to Windows 7 just a large blunder for me?

Thank you for the response. It looks like that might be the resolution, but I am guessing that she is talking about Vista? When I go to the same location I do not see those options (I am seeing http://glsmyth.com/temp/Untitled-1.jpg).

Any idea where I might be able to find Enable 32-bit Applications?
