Information Design Tool - ODBC connection error


I am getting the following message when I try to use an Universe to create a WebI report or in Dashboard Design.

Database error: [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] The specified DSN contains an architecture mismatch between the Driver and Application. (IES 10901) (WIS 10901)

What I did?

1. I created a ODBC connection on a MS SQL 2008 database in 32 bit ODBC source Adminsitrator.

2. I created connection in IDT based on that ODBC connection and then Created Data foundation and Business Layer on that connection. I also published it onto the Enterprise.

3. I tested the universe and also got values in IDT using query.

4. I wanted to create WebI report based on that universe and then I get the above error message.

I am very thankfull to any input.
