IIS7 ActiveX component not working with 64bit Classic ASP Web Application

Hi,

We are currently running our web application on IIS7 (Microsoft Windows 2008 Server) in 64bit mode.

However we are having issues with any file downloads (e.g. pdf, etc) using Active X via our web application written in Classic ASP, they do not download and we get this error:

"ActiveX component cant create object"

It works fine in 32 bit mode however we can not use that as we also use a 3rd party application called ABCpdf 9.0 which needs to be run in 64bit mode.

Can anyone help in solving this issue?

Try editing the application pool associated with your site, go into advanced settings and make sure under General, Enable 32-bit Applications is set to True

could be because you're running your application pool in 64 bit mode:

Experts,

This is the line of code we are having issues on:
Set oMyObject = Server.CreateObject("ReadFile.BinRead")

We can not enable 32-bit application to true, because we have ABCpdf installed and can only work with 64-bit version. We believe running a secondary application pool in 32-bit version would resolve the issue, from what we have researched on Google. How do we go about doing this?
