Windows 7 x32 software with dns-less MSSQL connection fail to connect

I have 32 bit software that makes use od DNS-less conenction to MSSQL 2008 server. On W7 x64, it fails to connect to a server, and returns '08001 sql server does not exist or access denied'

If I run the same software on the XPMODE, then it connects fine to the SQL server, making me belief there is something on the ODBC setup in W7x64 that is not supplied correctly to the Software when running in DNS-less.

Other than changing the software to DNS conenctions, is there any other way to get x32 software on x64 OS to use DNS-less connections to MSSQL 2008?

Kind Regards
