My ASP page is reporting an error when trying to connect to a database

     [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] The specified DSN contains an architecture mismatch between the Driver and Application


1)  I have Win7, 64 Bit Ultimate.
2)  I have the 32 bit DSN / driver configured using
c:\windows\syswow64\odbcad32.exe
3)  IIS is running on my laptop
4)  I'm connecting to localhost to a shared folder on my laptop, (it's not under InetPub)
5)  The DSN is connecting to a Oracle db on the network using the Microsoft Oracle driver.
I've rebooted etc.  

Hope you can help.

that is unless I read the article wrong... it doesn't seem to apply.  
I'm connecting to a Oracle 9   (32 bit) database using the 32 bit driver as mentioned in the article.

Are you sure you're not using the 64 bit odbcad32.exe instead of the 32 bit version of the same program?

2)  I have the 32 bit DSN / driver configured using  c:\windows\syswow64\odbcad32.exe

the article explains this is the 32 bit
I don't have any dsn's configured in the 64 bit odbc

Thanks for trying losip.

For anyone that is struggling with this, here's the apparent answer to get you through this.
Yes you have to set up the odbc driver in the 32 bit as mentioned above,
but you'll need to set the application pool to 32 bit.
