Classic ASP and Server 2008R2

I just setup a server to run some classic asp pages I have and everything was going smooth until I setup my access DSN, using odbcad32 I setup the dsn ran my scripts and I keep getting this error, can't seem to resolve. Line 251 is the line that the dsn is listed.

this error indicates the bit version (32 vs 64) don't match between your app and database.

are you positive you set up a 32 bit connection? Make sure your run the setup from c:\windows\sysWOW64\odbcad32.exe

also make sure you enable 32-bit application support for whatever application pool you're using to run the site

I dragged the sysWOW64\odbcad32.exe to the desktop and ran that to setup the dsn, I did just change the application pool to classic asp, I haven't restarted the computer yet but got the same message.

you sure your database is 32 bit? Check Task Manager, and under Processes, look for "*32" to be appended to the process name for your DB

it was working in the same environment it was in, same server setup. It's an old access database.
