Apparently, a recent virus on my 64 bit Exchange 2007 server had replaced the TranscodingService.exe with a 32 bit version of the executable. Where can I find a replacement 64 bit version of the TranscodingService.exe  executable?


The program or feature "\??\G:\Exchange\ClientAccess\owa\bin\DocumentViewing\TranscodingService.exe" cannot start or run due to incompatibility with 64-bit versions of Windows. Please contact the software vendor to ask if a 64-bit Windows compatible version is available.

have you tried a repair from the add/remove programs menu?  If that doesn't work, you can probably copy the file from another exchange install if available.

Do you have a backup of the server from which you could pull the file?

If you haven't installed the update described in you could obtain that, and that should replace the file you are having trouble with.

Ok, I'll give it a try later, since the server will probably require a restart and I don't want to disturb the end user clients.

I was able to download the Exchange 2007 SP1 as you suggested, but I wasn't able to install it due to open process issues. I was able to however, extract the 64 bit version of the necessary file from the Exchange 2007 SP1 upgrade directory and replace it for the incorrect 32 bit version.
