Windows 2008 server R2 compatibility mode

I am having a big problem. I purchased a 2008 r2 server to install Xenapp 6 and publish one in house application. After I had everything installed, I went to test the application before publishing it and when I launch ot I get the following error:

the application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b)
This is a 32 bit application which installs directly under C:\ and adds 3 Directories in the root of C. The OS is 64 bit and I am wondering if this might be what is causing the problem and how to get around it. I have right clicked the app and selected run as administrator, run in windoes xp mode but no luck. I moved hte directory which contains the executable to the program files (x86) folder and tried but same response... Could this be somehow installed as a native 32 bit application and run under 64 bit? anything special I would need to do?

when you install 32 application on windows server 2008 R2 that is came only with 64 bit you should use WOW64

I resolved this. These was a full install on 2008 R2 so Wow64 was already being used. Ended up uninstalling the 64 bit version of Oracle and installing a 32 bit version and the problem went away.

Thas for your responses
