SharePoint 2013 and BHold

I've upgraded my FIM installation to 2010 R2 SP1 on a demo machine that I've had for a while and re-installed SharePoint to 2013.  There are some extra things that need to be done for SP2013 and finally got FIM Portal working as expected.

After installing BHold I would get this Error that the Service was unavailable with Error 503.

After doing some research I discovered that SharePoint 2013 doesn't allow 32 bit apps by default.  So the trick is to change a configuration to allow 32 bit apps.

This can be found here:

All you really need to do is run a command line at c:\windows\system32\inetsrv.  Then execute the following command:  appcmd.exe set config -section:system.webServer/globalModules /[name='SPNativeRequestModule'].preCondition:integratedMode,bitness64

Now BHold should work.
