Possibly missing the correct run-time for the 32 bit version. Is there any specific reason you need to run your scripts in 32 bit mode? Have you tried 64 bit mode?

No just did not pay attention to that box. I guess I assumed it should be running the same engine version my bad. Seems to work if I set to 64bit.
