How to configure CF on a 64 bit server - Coldfusion Server Administration

I am trying to setup CF MX 7 on our new 64 bit Windows 2003 server (IIS 6). When we ran HTML and ASP pages prior to installing CF, it worked fine. After installing CF we kept getting 500 errors and even HTML/ASP wouldn't work. After uninstalling CF, it went back to working fine.

    Default How to configure CF on a 64 bit server

    I am trying to setup CF MX 7 on our new 64 bit Windows 2003 server (IIS 6).
    When we ran HTML and ASP pages prior to installing CF, it worked fine. After
    installing CF we kept getting 500 errors and even HTML/ASP wouldn't work.

    After uninstalling CF, it went back to working fine.

    I looked up the issue on MS's website, and their explanation states that a 64
    bit OS is pre-defined to only allow 64 bit extensions to run; but you can run
    32 bit extensions if you configure certain settings to allow it.

    Unfortunately, as per MS's usual finesse, they neglect to tell you <b>how</b>
    to adjust the server to allow 32 bit extensions.

    Has anyone here set up their 64 bit server for CF yet? If so, can you give me
    an idea on how to reconfigure the server so 32 bit extensions will work?

    Thx in advance.

    It's actually IIS6 (on64 bit platform) that requires 64 bit extensions.

    The way to enable 32 communication is to:
    * head to the %systemdrive%\Inetpub\AdminScripts
    * cscript.exe adsutil.vbs set W3SVC/AppPools/Enable32BitAppOnWin64 true
    * hit Return.

    Hmm, I did that, and it altered the IIS server, but now it says service
    unavailable and the App Pools are throwing errors right left and center; and
    IIS says it cannot load all extensions.

    All Extensions in IIS are surrently set to "prohibited", so I'm kind of at a
    loss as to what to do next so my server can run CF?

    I turned the setting you provided back to false and it is back to working w/o
    CF installed.

    The problem "service unavailable" is caused by the IIS software, when switching
    the Enable32Bit thing on, the default ASP.NET software/plugin is not allright
    anymore.

    Just remove the ASP isapi filter on the general properties of your IIS, and
    things work.
    (We don't need the ASP application layer, if you have the powerful ColdFusion
    AL installed on your server ;-)
