Spent allot upgrading everything recently to Win 7 & Win Server 2008 R2, everything 64 bit OS.

Looks like this add-in for SQL only works on 32 bit OS. Darn. Has anyone tried running it on 64? Any word on 64 bit development for this add-in?

How can I work around this meanwhile?

Hi There,

I am running 64 bit Windows 7 and I've noticed some things don't work, especially anything VB6 related :-)

My solution was to get VMWare running Windows XP, then I fire up a virtual machine anytime I want to get into that environment. It works well for me.

The VMWare Player is free, but you cannot create new VM's with it. You would have to get a copy of a VMWare instance with Windows XP on it from somewhere, or buy the full version of VMWare.
