I am an application developer with about 20 years experience in several pre. Unfortunately the person doing the testing didn't test the functionality of a couple of apps that I have that rely on accessing the data to do both live- and post-processing on the data to produce some reports. We are testing the operational system Windows Server 2008 r2 in one of our clients. However, I believe that the 32-bit driver works. You can check the Drivers tab to see a list of the drivers you can add, if your driver isn't in this list then you may need to install it. Get answers and train to solve all your tech problems - anytime, anywhere. So I'm guessing it works for both 32 bit and 64 bit, but I'm not sure.
Could it be part of a Win 2008 Server install? Once I had the drivers added and the program pointing to the right drivers, everything worked like it use to. At the same time we are cognizant of the 32 bit to 64 bit migration taking place everywhere and wish to be able to purchase and utilize a combination of hardware and software that will allow us to take the correct path from 32 bit to 64 bit over the next two years in two distinct steps. I won't be able to resort back to 2003 unfortunately. Hi All,:- I hope that some of you are able to help me, because Im stuck in a situation, which is very frustrating. I'd like to thank you for the hints. When I run the installation, I get a dialogbox with information about the installation. And SysWow64 folder has all of the 32 bit drivers.
Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform. I ran into an issue with some third party software that we use to track software license usage in our computer labs. You are able to ping the Oracle Machine from Win 7 4. That improves performance of your applications, their quality, reliability and especially the deployment process, since there is no need to supply additional client software together with your application. Currently, our 15 or so workstations are about 50% 64 bit hardware architecture and 50% 32 bit hardware architecture.
I am not sure if I had any apps running. I tried to import the file into the registry and I got an error seen below. I have a 64 bit windows server 2008 R2 system. I spoke to the Administrator and he said he had not named the Windows. You will be unable to use this driver until these components have been installed. Stand Out as the employee with proven skills. Step 1 Our Step 1 goal is to be able to run a 32 bit.
I assumed perhaps incorrectly that any. Many of my reports and they happen to be Crystal Reports have stopped working. I'm guessing Windows has a way to set up the default configuration of whatever dialog control panel opens and the way it installs applications. I would say to just ensure that the odbc drivers that you're going to use are available in both 32-bit and 64-bit flavors. Have you considered for assistance or an updated driver? Please check the below items as well. Can you please share the error details.
Thank you very much in advance for your help. First, I would agree 100% with Robert - linked servers perform badly. This is the part where things break. Recently we are doing migration from windows 2003 server to windows 2008 server 32- bit to 64- bit. Can you tell me where specifically you placed your key for the 32 bit driver in the registry, and what strings you used? It brings up another question.
Hello Elliot, Thank you for your input. Or do I need to restart the whole server? After creating the entry by hand , I fired up my windows service and everything was happy. The answer provided on is no longer valid. Do you know if I need to restart or anything like that? Then what I get is an Error 193 when I try to connect. Since I've figured out a way to do it, I'll provide my solution as an answer in keeping with the on how to answer your own question. I didn't add an entry for the driver, however, as that was not installed by the standard installer for the app either.
Is there any way to install this 32 bit driver in my 64 bit server system? Account has proper access to Oracle database. When you say apps running do they have to be present on the desktop and open for them to be technically running or could they be running in the background without my knowledge. I should tell you that when this machine was originally setup and Crystal Reports was installed I had not problems with the report setup or running. We recently migrated the app to 64-bit Server 2008 after receiving assurances from the company that it was compatible and running some preliminary tests that showed that the app worked in the 64-bit environment. I do not know if that is relevant. I hope I am not messing something up by making these moves.
