Running SSIS 32-bit drivers or tasks on a 64 bit machine


This is an answer to a forum question on

Running SSIS on a 64-bit machine has several caveat that developers need to be aware of.  Tasks like the ActiveX task and Execute DTS 2000 Package Task only work either on a 32-bit machine or by running in 32-bit mode on a 64-bit machine.  This is also the case for many data providers like Excel, Access, and many ODBC drivers.  If you are working on a 64-bit machine don't worry there is a work around to keep yourself productive while still using 32-bit tasks and drivers.
