I have installed Team Foundation Server 2010 on my Windows Server 2008 R2 with SUCCESS messages. But when I try to connect to the TFS (even from the same computer) I get this message:
ISAPI Filter 'C:\JAVA\isapi_redirect.dll' could not be loaded due to a configuration problem. The current configuration only supports loading images built for a AMD64 processor architecture. The data field contains the error number. To learn more about
this issue, including how to troubleshooting this kind of processor architecture mismatch error, see
In this server I have running properly a webpage on IIS7, and another one on Tomcat. Both of them are running well. But the TFS does not. I had a look in several sites with similar problems, except their ISAPI Filter with problems was not isapi_redirect,
but the asp one. So it didn't work.
Can anyone help me? Why is my TFS using Java and not IIS? THANKS!

couple places to start.
1) have you disabled UAC temporarily?
2) Run process monitor to see if there is a permissions issue.

I was faced with the very same problem with the ISAPI filters with TFS. The problem that I found was deep within a web installer 3.0 download that added some new tools and features branded as being version 7.5 for IIS. To fix the problem I removed IIS
completely then rebooted the machine.
After rebooting I installed only the default options to get IIS up and running on the box. As soon as I did that and bypassed reinstalling the plugins I was able to finally connect with the TF Server via internet explorer. Thanks to Grant at Microsoft
for getting me thinking in the right direction.
Again beware of updating any of IIS's functionality through web installer without creating a restore point.
