The application makes use of the no-longer-supported (or available) DSOFramer object. I can compile to x86 and everything works fine except our database client (IBM DB2) is 64-bit which causes the program to crash (we can't install both 32-bit
and 64-bit DB2 client according to IBM.com). So I really want to compile as Any CPU so that it will work as either 32-bit or 64-bit. This also allows me to make use of more memory when using a 64-bit OS.
The Any CPU deployment does not work with the DSOFramer object because the object is 32-bit. It just crashes with a generic error message. I would really like to get rid of the DSOFramer object anyway since it is no longer supported,
buggy, and doesn't work with 64-bit (maybe it could be compiled for 64?- I still have the source lying around, but I don't think this is our best option).
I tried using a web browser object, which should be able to open office documents. I applied th
