in thread Perl Version and Win32::OLE

I don't know if there is a module available to help with this, but a rather inelegant solution that I have come up with is to install Perl x86 on the 64-bit server and then from a %windir%\SysWoW64\cmd.exe (32-bit command prompt), run the script in question. For our needs, this should be sufficient as the scripts we use are administrative in nature so we would be using them interactively. A couple of them would run as scheduled tasks so I will need to come up with a solution to allow those scripts to be run automatically. Everything else on our system can use the x64 version of Perl just fine since it doesn't need to access any of the 32-bit DLLs. This is just one solution and may not be useful in every case.
