Hello

I am trying to install Exchange 2010. Therefore, the installer says that I have to change the IIS to 64bit mode.

I am already running 2 websites on IIS, can I change IIS to 64bit easely without messing up my websites?

How do I do it?

THanks

I don't see how it could. Do you have any 32/64 bit code/threading on these sites?
To be doubly doubly safe you could take a system restore and roll back in anything weird happened

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Fortunately I did...

Both websites dont run anymore :-/

What I did was:

cscript %SYSTEMDRIVE%\inetpub\adminscripts\adsutil.vbs SET W3SVC/AppPools/Enable32bitAppOnWin64 0

// Uninstalling 32bit
%SYSTEMROOT%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_regiis.exe -u
%SYSTEMROOT%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\aspnet_regiis.exe -u

// Installing 64bit
%SYSTEMROOT%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\aspnet_regiis.exe -i
%SYSTEMROOT%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\aspnet_regiis.exe -i

What did I do wrong?

Thanks

When you say don't run anymore... what do you get?
Can you create a simple site with either an html or apsx file and serve that up?

What are the sites created in? asp/aspx/php/static html?
Any Db connections?

Have you run an iisreset from the command prompt to be sure iis restareted?

This is the error message:

Fehler beim Aufrufen von "LoadLibraryEx" für den ISAPI-Filter "C:\Parallels\Plesk\isapi\sitepreview.dll". (german)

Means something like "Error while loading "LoadLibraryEx" for the ISAPI-Filter "C:\Parallels\Plesk\isapi\sitepreview.dll"


=> Plesk is installed, is Plesk not compatible with x64?

Ok, its working now.

Plesk has registered a non-64bit-compatible ISAPI Filter for generating Site-Previews. As I dont need this feature, I just removed the SitePreview-DLL as ISAPI-Filter.

Thanks!
