  4. 4. 32 bits or 64 bits?<br />If you want to install SaaS ETL on a 64-bit computer, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to install the 64-bit version of SaaS ETL.<br />The 64bit version is able to see only those DSNs created with an 64-bit ODBC driver. If you have an ERP with an ODBC driver that is available only in 32-bit, then you need to install the 32-bit version of SaaS ETL even if your server is 64-bit.<br />Only use the 64-bit version if you have a 64-bit ODBC driver for your ERP.<br />
