When using the Microsoft.XMLHTTP component, my ASP script hangs
Posted by Arvand Sabetian (Import) on 19 June 2010 02:47 PM
All application pools run in 32-bit mode for the highest level of compatibility on our Windows 2008 64-bit servers. While most ASP components are only available in 32-bit mode, the Microsoft.XMLHTTP is available on these servers only in 64-bit mode.

One way to resolve this issue is to ask the support staff to change your application pool to 64-bit mode. However, this has proven to break other parts of the application as many ASP components do not have a 64-bit version available. A workaround to this issue is to alter your script to use the
Msxml2.ServerXMLHTTP or MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP.4.0 components which are available in 32-bit mode.

Please contact our support if you have further questions in regards to this issue.

Is there a special installer you need to use to get 32-bit versions of MSXML?

I'm not a 100% sure but last time I did research on this, MSXML 32-bit can not be installed on 64-bit systems.
