I am rusty at Snitz. It's been a long while.

Does anyone know how to get the classic Snitz up and running on a Windows 10 machine? I have IIS installed as well as SQL Server 2012.

I have the .asp files rendering, but, of all things, I am having difficulty getting my connection string up and running. Probably a permissions thing. I don't know though.

Thoughts?

Thank you!

OK. guys, I found my primary blockage. I am running a 64-bit OS, and I needed to run my IIS site as a 32-bit application in the Application Pools section for my site. Here is the fix for that ... https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/iis/application-frameworks/running-classic-asp-applications-on-iis-7-and-iis-8/using-classic-asp-with-microsoft-access-databases-on-iis#working-with-64-bit-systems

Just in case that page gets lost some day ... here are the instructions I used:

Working with 64-bit Systems

Unfortunately there are no 64-bit ODBC drivers, so on 64-bit systems you will have to run your applications in 32-bit mode. To do so, use the following steps:

On the taskbar, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
In the Connections pane, click Application Pools.
Highlight the application pool for your application, then click Advanced Settings... in the Actions pane.
In the Advanced Settings dialog, specify True for Enable 32-Bit Applications.
Click OK to close the Advanced Settings dialog.

Note: The 64-bit control panel applet for managing ODBC connections will not display 32-bit ODBC drivers. To work around this issue, you need to open the 32-bit ODBC applet. To do so, use the following steps:

Click Start and then Run, or open a command prompt.

Enter the following command:

%windir%\syswow64\odbcad32.exe

Press the enter key.
