E-MSS: Why Does 64-bit Connectivity Fail For App Designer, But 32-bit Connectivity Work?

(Doc ID 2317056.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 12, 2017

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.55 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

When trying to connect App Designer 8.55 from my work station Windows 7 using ODBC 64 bit, it had the following error.

Invalid Connect ID or password for signon -- see your security administrator.

When I use ODBC 32 bit, it works.
Why does 32-bit work and 64-bit does not work for tools 8.55?
