SPM 7.0 - During the System Check, the Install fails the 'Check 64 Bit SQL Server'

I t is possible to install the 32 bit version of SQL Server 2008 on 64 bit OS/hardware. However if this is done, the SPM 7.0 Installer will not detect it as a valid SQL Server instance and you will see a screen something like this during the Check System portion of the Install:

SPM 7.0 does not support the use of 32 bit versions of SQL Server 2008 on 64 bit Operating Systems. To correct this, you will need to install the 64 bit version of SQL Server 2008. Note that SPM 7.0 does support the use of 32 bit SQL Server 2008 on 32 bit Operating Systems.

Additional Information:

  1. It is possible to force the SPM 7.0 installer to allow a 32 bit version of SQL Server by manually editing broker.xml, but this configuration was not tested and is technically not supported. If there is some reason that this configuration is necessary, contact L4 support, but be aware that if the software does not function as expected it will be up to the user to move to the officially supported configuration, that is, 64 bit operating systems require the 64 bit version of SQL Server 2008.
  2. Another reason that this problem could occur is if the selected SQL instance is using SQL Server 2008 Developer Edition. This is not a supported edition of SQL Server for production environments.
