VB script not working on 64 bit machine?

Hi

 

I have a python script containing calculate field processes that use VB script to achieve this. The script ran fine on my old 32 bit machine but after upgrading to 64 bit, it appears as though it doesn't work, I get the following error message:-

 

ERROR 000989: Tool CalculateField cannot use VB expressions for services

 

Looking on some forums it looks like I need to change all of my VB expressions to python, but there are an awful lot so I was wondering whether it is possible somehow to run the script in 32 bit mode? Is that an option?

 

I currently have a scheduled task which runs a .bat file overnight that runs the py file, but not sure how I could stipulate for it to run in 32 bit mode, if that's even possible?

 

Thanks
