Running a 32 bit command line app on a 64 bit platform

So I am currently working on a data migration into CRM 4.0 live. The various wrappers and libraries for the solution require that the executable run as a 32 bit application. To solve this problem do the following:

  • Start->Run
  • %windir%\SysWoW64\cmd.exe
This will open up a command prompt that utilizes the Windows-32-on-Windows-64 (WOW64) subsystem layer to run 32-bit programs.

There is an excellent post here with lots more details.

Music and passion...
