Run the program in WoW64 mode

I have developed a number of websites using Microsoft Access and Classic ASP. When I got my new Windows 7 machine I found that I was no longer able to develop on my local machine as I have in the past because it is 64 bit and Access us 32 bit. This is a bit of a disaster for me, as I need to be able to support these website.

I have read that a workaround is the run the program in WoW64 mode. I do not actually know what this means, nor how to implement it. Can anyone tell me what I can do to continue supporting these websites?

I have always been able to work locally then upload my work, but since I am told that the error message I am getting ("ADODB.Command error '800a0e7a' Provider cannot be found. It may not be properly installed.") indicates that there is this incompatibility, is there any way I can work around this, or was moving up to Windows 7 just a large blunder for me?

Cheers -
