When using the Microsoft.XMLHTTP component, my ASP script hangs

All application pools run in 32-bit mode for the highest level of compatibility on our Windows 2008 64-bit servers. While most ASP components are only available in 32-bit mode, the Microsoft.XMLHTTP is available on these servers only in 64-bit mode.

One way to resolve this issue is to ask the support staff to change your application pool to 64-bit mode. However, this has proven to break other parts of the application as many ASP components do not have a 64-bit version available. A workaround to this issue is to alter your script to use the Msxml2.ServerXMLHTTP or MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP.4.0 components which are available in 32-bit mode.
