I'm trying to install CF8 on a Windows 2008 64bit box but I get the following error message during the installation;

Operation Failed with 0x8007000b An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format.

Any suggestions on how to correct this problem?

have you enabled 32bit applications in the IIS Application Pool settings?


Yes, I already did that.

Only 8.0.1 supports 32bit on 64bit
