'enable32BitAppOnWin64' is not a valid attribute of the deployment object 'createApp'

Jan 24, 2011 at 9:41 AM

Hi,

I am trying to import the Orchard package I downloaded from CodePlex using the deploy menu item through IIS Manager.

After the wizard displays the steps in the installation, I receive the following error: 'enable32BitAppOnWin64' is not a valid attribute of the deployment object 'createApp'.
I am running Windows 7 64bit.

This is the same .zip file that WebPI uses to install Orchard.

Please advise,

Thanks

Can you please try to upgrade the version of WebDeploy on your machine?  You can either install via Web PI:

...or just install directly from here:

Hope this helps... please let us know if this resolves the problem.

Thanks,
Bradley

Hi, I already have WebDeploy 2.0 installed.

Any other suggestion?

Same problem. I have the following installed:

  • Web Deployment Tool 2.1 (listed twice)
  • Web Deployment Tool 2.1 without bundled SQL supprt
  • Web Deployment Tool 2.1 for Hosting Servers
  • Web Deployment Tool 1.1

This is on Windows 7 x64 Ultimate. Attempting to install into IIS 7.5 via the Deploy / Import Application wizard.

I am having the same problem, using Orchard 1.1.30. Any updates?

I was able to workaround this issue by editing the "manifest.xml" file in the package. Replace the following line:

<iisapp path="Orchard" managedRuntimeVersion="v4.0" />

With the following line:

<iisapp path="Orchard" managedRuntimeVersion="v4.0" enable32BitAppOnWin64="False" managedPipelineMode="Integrated" />

It seems these two attributes are required. I'm not sure whether this is the correct solution, but it seems to work.
