BizTalk Server 2009 BAM Portal (Enabling 32-bit mode for IIS on 64-bit platform)

Today I installed BizTalk server 2009 on my Windows-7 64-bit OS, after installing i try configuring the BizTalk server  SSO, BizTalk Group, BTS Runtime etc.. all are  passed except BAM Portal. After looking at error message i figured out, for BAM portal the IIS must be in 32 bit mode.  because BAM portal requires IIS to run on 32 bit mode.

To enable IIS 32-bit mode  Here is the script we need to execute the following command

cscript.exe c:\Inetpub\AdminScripts\adsutil.vbs set W3SVC/AppPools/Enable32BitAppOnWin64 1 

please make sure that you run cmd as Administrator . other wise you get the following error on windows 7


Admin Mode:


I really Hope BizTalk Server team will fix this small issue in future. ( When i was @MS i was working for these to great people Puru Amradkar –PM , Michael Roze-SDE  they should look at it this issue :) )
