Error creating a Linked Server (OLEDB) for Sybase from SQL Server 2006 64bit

We are moving our databases (Sybase 12.5.03 & SQL Server 2000 EE 32bit) as part of this we'll be upgrading SQL Server to 2005 EE,  to a new host, running Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise 64bit.

The problem is on the new host I can't get the linked server to work because the Provider (Sybase.ASEOLEDBProvider) is not being registered with SQL Server. I have run the Sybase OLE Configuration Manager version 2.7 and it appears to work. I have rebooted to see if that helps but it doesn't want to work ?

The is a copy of the error message attached,

My guess is that the Sybase.ASEOLEDBProvider you are trying to use is 32 bit and you are trying to use SQL Server 64 bit.

Are you going to the 64 bit versions of both Sybase and SQL Server?
Does the ASEOLEDBProvider come in the flavor you need?

Regards,
Bill
