No DSN options under ODBC in Server 2008 r2

I have a fresh install of Windows Server 2008 r2 which has IIS installed as the only role.  I copied over some web pages and noticed when the web page uses an sql connection, everything works great.  But, when it uses an access connection, it provides the following error:

ADODB.Connection error '800a0e7a'

Provider cannot be found. It may not be properly installed.

The code for the connection uses oledb 12.0, and works fine on a server 2003 iis 6.0 machine.

So, i went to ODBC connections on my server, and there are no options under system or user.  I then installed office 2007 and still no luck.

How do I get my odbc options to show up under the odbc in administrative tools?

Nevermind, I found the answer.  Enable 32-bit applications" needs to be enabled in the connection pool for the website, within IIS Manager 7.
